Beyond 80/20: Embrace The ‘Exceptions’!
with Adrian Reed
The IIBA Hawaii Chapter is proud to present the following IIBA webinar by Adrian Reed.
In the late 1890s, Pareto showed that 80% of the wealth in Italy was controlled by 20% of the population. 130 years later the ‘pareto principle’ is still used to determine what is ‘mainstream’ and what is an ‘exception’. But should it be?
All too often, applying the principle simplistically leads to services and processes being designed that marginalise vulnerable stakeholder groups. However, it doesn’t have to be this way and there are a range of tools that can be used by BAs to help ensure this trap is avoided. In this presentation you will hear:
- The importance of understanding ‘variety’, and how this relates to service design
- Practical approaches for understanding stakeholders and their perspectives
- How journey maps and personas work well, but alone they aren’t enough
- How ‘persona overlays’ can be helpful in ensuring design is inclusive
This presentation focuses on practical tools, and blends ideas from service design, systems thinking and business analysis.
Event to be held online via Zoom.
