Centre of Excellence

What is a Centre of Excellence?

Intrapreneurship for our Industry

‘A Centre of Excellence (COE) is a team, a shared facility or an entity that provides leadership, best practices, research, support and/or training for a focus area.’

Evolving BA truly values in learning from within.

Companies invest heavily in recruiting new talent whilst not always taking the opportunity to grow internally. This can be due to anticipated cost or time or sometimes they forget that their best assets are already working for them.

A Centre of Excellence is the perfect service for any sized team. A collocated small team or an international team of hundreds. This is because each BA is an individual with a differing background. Every BA I’ve interacted with has had something new to offer me. A tool or technique, a story, or a challenge!

Georgiana is developing Centre of Excellences using a blueprint of her design to bring out the best in each Business Analyst but ultimately helping them to improve the entire organisation. Whether that’s using the tools of a project or delivering improvement initiatives.
