Session 2:

Make Your Project Soar with SOAR

How BAs are scaling and adapting SOAR analysis to fit any organization and project

Presented by: Dorian, Newfire IT Business Analyst, Croatia
Date & Time: 28 September @ 6 PM

There is, in fact, a kryptonite to protect against a project flop – SOAR analysis!

SOAR is a strategic planning technique that can be applied to IT projects of all sizes and complexities. In the hands of a Business Analyst, it can help organizations focus on their current strengths and opportunities while creating a vision for the future. This vision can be used to motivate stakeholders and drive projects towards completion.

Here, Dorian will dive into the SOAR tool and demonstrate how to scale and adapt it to the needs of any unique organization.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use the SOAR analysis tool, when to employ it, and how to maximize it to your advantage
  • Prepare for a SOAR analysis and make the most of the outcome
  • Identify the advantages and limitations of a SOAR analysis
  • Navigate SOAR’s biggest obstacles
