BA Trailblazer | Artificial Intelligence for BAs with Kevin Dewalt

The Ottawa, Montreal, Palmetto, and Quebec chapters are pleased to invite you to an exciting closed-circuit seminar with AI expert Kevin Dewalt.

While there is a lot of great information on what AI is and how it is being used, there is not a lot available to the business analyst community in the way of tools and techniques for BAs to use on AI projects.

Join us to:

  • Get first-hand insight from Kevin Dewalt as he relates his experiences to the BABOK® Knowledge Areas.
  • Pose questions directly to Kevin during the live event, and discover how the skills you already have as a BA are valuable to an AI project.
  • Learn about the similarities and differences of AI project delivery compared to traditional project delivery, from the perspective of the business analyst.
