Business values are the concepts that guide your business.
Business values can help you make decisions, foster a culture of teamwork and collaboration and create a positive working environment.
Ethics : A Business Analyst should have the ability to sense when a proposed solution or requirement may present ethical difficulties to either an organization or the stakeholders; thereby try to reduce the exposure to risk. Ethics require focus on fairness, consideration and moral behavior. The impact of the solution on all stakeholders needs to be considered and ensured that those groups are treated as fairly as possible.
Beliefs and attitudes are views that you hold to be true and influence your actions.They can relate to how people should behave, the way managers should act, how work should be done and how staff should treat each other at work. For example:
At Aspire Business Analysis, we have been reflecting on our experience of what makes a great business analyst. There are a whole bunch of technical skills that are critical but there are other attributes and behaviours which make a huge difference when applying the technical skills.
These characteristics are not unique to the role of a Business Analyst. Nonetheless, they play a key role in increasing personal effectiveness at work and exist at the core of every Business analyst’s skillset.
The skills and behaviours focused upon in this competency help the Business Analyst in gaining the trust and respect of stakeholders. By meeting expectations, carrying out tasks on time, delivering quality results and demonstrating adaptability; a Business Analyst can showcase these skills.
Trust helps in many ways in smooth functioning of a business. It creates a confidence in the minds of the stakeholders to believe when they share sensitive information or issues with the Business Analyst. They also place faith that their recommendations are well-thought over and then decided to be taken further or discarded.
