I work in a Business Analytice consulting practice, and have completed over 300 projects, but I always continue to learn more. However, it is my opinion that the approach in this book lean more to a academic or theoretically approach rather than the practical approach I see clients implementing.
The content is decent, but the delivery was boring. You really have to be interested in it. I wish it had more details on the subject and how to use it and gain access.
Reads as a business case for the Executive decision makers on the business justification for the business Analyst role and their tools including dashboards, KPIs, and data warehouse infrastructure. It espouses a delivery model of think big, start small, and deliver fast to build quick wins and build momentum on delivery of projects.
"Very useful insights and starting point"
I found the matter if fact presentation style and the pace of the presenter very good. I will have to listen again to note all the useful models and examples
