Hello

Hi,

My name is Will Cheaqui. I am currently working out of the field but am just about ready to start a Master's program at Grand Canyon University Online. I am looking to get connected and hopefully get some advice as I start in this field. 

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business from a school in South Carolina. The most advanced mathematics class I have taken is only Calculus 1, but I did very well in it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I never took statistics in college, but I have gone through MIT's open courseware Introduction to Probability and Statistics. I also am familiar with Excel, R, Python, and basic relational principles.

I would love to get some advice as I get started. My goal in this forum is to grow my knowledge in what I need to learn and where I can learn it, and then turn around and help those after me to learn as well.

 

Thank you,

Will

Re: Hello 

Thank you Kimbo,

I am absolutely looking into that as well. I plan during some of the breaks to take some training, in addition to my schooling, to be able to get a foundation in Data Science and be able to use my programming and business background to build up my skills in that area.

 

Will

Let me start by saying that a business rule is far more granular than a business decision, and that the two should never be confused. Today, it is an unfortunate fact that some vendors would have potential clients believe that there is synergy between business rules and business decisions. Perhaps this is because in an effort to differentiate one b...

Traceability is one of the lesser understood aspects of business analysis. It is indeed quite hard to maintain good traceability unless automated. This is why BABoK® warns us being theoretical about traceability. In this article, I would like to explain traceability concepts with help of an example. BABoK® definition of traceability: ...

Most IT jobs have a clear, specific job description and career path. However, the business analyst career path tends to vary, as do the descriptions from job to job. The business analyst career path is best. Because, “There are career tracks that zigzag back and forth between IT and business. Someone might start as a business analyst, and the...
