Presentation: Cultivating a Growth Mindset: Insights for Business Analysts

Swati will be sharing her insights on the difference between growth and fixed mindsets and how a growth mindset benefits Business Analysts (BAs) and organisations. The presentation will also cover how to support a growth mindset by building a learning culture, including knowledge sharing opportunities in BA community and how ability and intelligence can be achieved through effort, through being adaptable, performing continuous learning and improvement to oneself.

In this constantly changing environment and with AI surrounding us, BAs with a growth mindset need to be resilient and are better equipped to succeed so how can we utilise opportunities to achieve this.

Adopting a growth mindset is not just about individual development; it also contributes to the success of the entire organization. However, the challenge is how do BAs adopt it and apply it in their work?
