Skills Workshop | Ten Techniques in a Day

IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais is pleased to host the full-day workshop, Ten Techniques in a Day, as part of the chapter's growing Skills Workshops and Masterclasses - a professional development series designed specifically for business analysts by business analysts.

Overview and Purpose
