Topic: Using Decision Quality to Improve Business Value 

PDU Category: Strategic=0.5   plus   Technical=0.5 

It can be argued that the most value-leveraging project deliverable to a business is the Project Charter.  This is the document that a business uses to formalize the start of a project and while it’s often-times a relatively short document, the amount of value of each piece of information in that document is huge.  In the past 5 years or so, PMI has acknowledged the importance and value of the Project Charter by adding the PMI-PBA certification.  Different industries call these part of the project process names like Front End Engineering, Project Appraisal, pre-project planning, Seed, Formative Stage, and Project Requirement Setting.  Tonight I’ll introduce the fundamentals of the Business Analyst process, and take a deeper look into increasing the quality of the decisions that can provide a higher level of alignment between the business and the project execution team.
