Webinar Series

Our webinars and in partnership with IIBA Chapters, we've conducted a well-received series of webinars covering pressing topics and courses like business analysis, business architecture, and AI's role in these fields. With hundreds of participants joining us live and many more engaging through recordings, the series has sparked conversations that are driving our industry forward.

Here is a rundown of some of the highlights and topics discussed:

Key Courses Launches in 2023

This year, we've introduced several courses to our offering, including:

Launched in January, this course has already seen many professionals earn their Agile Analysis Certification. 

"Thanks to Agora Insights' AAC Agile Master Class, I was able to pass my certification on the first try! The content was not only informative but also engaging and practical." - Alyssa R

Our innovative 10-step methodology, introduced in January, has been praised for its integration of AI tools, enhancing the efficiency of developing project requirements.

"I really enjoyed the course. Allowed me to understand how everything fits together. In the projects we only do a part of the work and do not always see the full picture. This will help me in the next project work. Really keen to use all the knowledge gained in this course. Using the ChatGPT was awesome. I got some really insightful information outputs when I used the ChatGPT. I feel this is a course that you will always go back to when you need a refresher. Thank you so much Deirdre" - Reena G.  

In May, we merged AI technology with business architecture, a course that's a sign of what is to come in the field of Business Architecture for the future. Due to the rapid changes in AI we have merged some of this with the Mastering Business Architecture course with plans to create custom bots for learners. 

In November, Agora Insights announced a new live training opportunity - Mastering Business Architecture in just 10 days

"Great course, especially the link to AI and how that can accelerate the development of the reference architecture." - Stuart D

Personal Stories of Success

Agora Insights_2023 - Personal Stories

"This program had everything that I needed to take the CBA Test. It went beyond the BizBOK in that it shared things that were relevant to the real world applications, while making sure that the info was clustered in a way that it made sense. I would definitely recommend this for anyone that is going to take the test to certify" - Travis S 

"This class really helped me study efficiently by focusing on the big ideas behind each BABOK chapter! Receiving Deirdre's feedback on chapter assignments also gave me a sense of how to reason through exam questions effectively. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn an easy way to access all of the techniques and best practices covered in BABOK". - Lucas J

"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning." - Benjamin Franklin

Looking Forward to 2024

What does 2024 look like

We know that 2024 is going to be filled with navigating the old and the new; therefore, understanding our roles in a world that is uncertain right now is going to be important. To help with the transition into 2024, we are bringing in exciting engagements.

Architects Arena & Analysts Arena

We felt that personal time with learners was an important step for our 2024 strategy. While assignments have been a great way for learners to think about what they are doing, nothing beats asking questions directly.
