Lately, business analysts have appeared in popular literature. A quantitative analysis can be a part of your data gathering, though having the ability to solicit information, appropriate data, and read reports to identify business areas can assist in the foundation of problem solving. Having the right information can assist a leader in constructing an action plan to correct any weaknesses or deficiencies.
Identify an organization that you will use for this assignment and your final project. For this week’s assignment, assume you were asked to speak at this organization’s next leadership meeting about research analysis methods. Begin by conducting research on business analytics, SWOT, and needs analysis. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that evaluates the processes so that your audience realizes the benefits of each.
Then, use your research and evaluation of the processes to evaluate the internal and external environment for strengths and gaps that may influence the organization’s productivity. Based on your research, create a process for identifying areas of concern and for addressing these in an action plan. Include appropriate tables, graphs, and flowcharts to show the process and your findings within your presentation.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style, where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.
