My name is Sean McInnes and I am a Business Analyst with 17+ years experience collaborating effectively to deliver solutions in a wide variety of domains. My experience is working with IT and/or other Business Area’s creating a very diverse background.

I am curious, energetic, flexible thinker, quick learner and excited to go the extra distance to affect a positive change. I am PMP and Prosci Change Management certified and am considering either a CBAP or BA certification in the PMI. I subscribe to the idea of lifelong learning which I feel has assisted me in adapting to new domains, communicating effectively and establishing trust with all stakeholders in the organization.

One thing I have observed is all projects introduce change and that it is very important to manage the change effectively. The business analyst is often visible as an agent in all phases of the project and needs to engage each stakeholder with a context appropriate tool or process. Increasingly I have felt my strength and passion while utilizing my skills, knowledge and experience as a Business Analyst allows me to positively influence the change both leadership, team and more importantly the end users or customers.

This is why I consider myself an excellent Business Analyst.
