With the Scoring Matrix, you can document all of your comparative research and findings and provide those details professionally and intuitively in a single matrix to those that make decisions.
This is a huge time saver as you no longer will you have to set a multi-hour meeting to painfully articulate the differences between products, services or companies! Simply provide the decision makers with the matrix and explain your findings.
I had been a Business Analyst for over two years, struggling in front of executives to explain why certain products were more beneficial than others. This all changed when I worked with a Senior Business Analyst on a project and they introduced me to the Scoring Matrix. This visual tool not only saved me time, but it also displayed my findings in a very professional manner. The meeting with top level executes was no longer about having to explain all of the details and how I came to my recommendation, but instead focused on making a decision and setting next steps.
What am I going to get from this course?
A step by step guide to visually compare products, services, or companies.
What bonuses are included in this course?
All successful Business Analysts understand that in their position, the search for knowledge and techniques will never end. As that Senior Business Analyst did for me years ago, I now want to pass my knowledge, experience, and best practices on to you!
