Key Qualities

At Bridging the Gap, we believe we build our profession one business analyst at a time. We value the investment the participants make with us and in themselves, and we do our best to maximize the value of that investment.

We have a passion for serving our participants. We want to see our participants succeed, and we celebrate results, big and small.

We provide helpful, constructive, and honest feedback to help our participants apply industry-standard practices to their individual business analysis work.

We provide coaching and teaching in alignment with what’s taught with the course materials, while also representing that business analysis work varies from role to role.

We value practical experience and real-world application, and so we bring our own personal and professional experience to our teaching and are careful to differentiate between our personal experience and course/industry standards.

We draw out the best in our participants. We are approachable and do our best to answer their true question, and get to their underlying doubt and concern. We mix questions with answers to help our participants expand through improving their analytical thinking and communication skills.

We are clear about our boundaries and commitments, to each other and to our participants. We set clear boundaries and expectations with our participants. And we do our part by honoring the commitments we make to the program as well.

We believe that professional work can be both financially rewarding and personally fulfilling. We strive to put the right people in the right roles and compensate team members fairly.

About Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap offers 4 on-demand, online courses. Participants can sign up for the course when it works for them, and move through at a pace that works for them. Most courses come with 90 days of instructor support in which participants can ask questions via email, during live instructor hours calls for small group coaching, and submit course materials to meet the certificate of completion requirements.

Twice each year, we run our live online session of The Business Analyst Blueprint® training program, which combines 3 online courses in a 4-month period with additional live webinars and instructor hours for small group coaching.
