Why Business Analysts Need to Learn to Sell
Please join us for our April 2019 Speaker Event featuring:
“Sales” and “selling” are often tinged with negative connotations and seen as dirty words. Like public speaking & politics, they can make people nervous and run in the other direction! However, to be effective business analysis professionals, we constantly need to persuade people that are not obligated to listen to us. From our stakeholders, to users, to development teams, and even to our own organizational leadership, it is an ongoing challenge inherently baked into our daily work. So, it would appear, we need to sell! Appalled gasps of horror all around!
In this talk, Heidi explores the differences between selling and influencing, and how building your sales skills can support the ability to influence stakeholders in your role as a business analyst.
