About Nick Broom

📖 Summary

I'm an independent Business Architecture and Business Analysis professional, specialising in Business Process Modelling and Decision Management, with a focus on employing those techniques in Agile and iterative development environments. I've worked in a variety of different industries, including Retail and Investment Banking, Insurance, Contact Centres, Legal, and Healthcare Regulation. I've worked in the field for 15 years and had great success in delivering in-house and 3rd-party software development projects. I've managed, trained, and mentored Business Analysts of all levels in a range of techniques, including user story writing, BPMN, UML, and decision modelling. I'm hugely passionate about raising the profile of business analysis, increasing the competency of its practitioners and demonstrating how it deserves to be seen as a peer role alongside project managers. I'm the author of a number of Business Analysis blog posts, which can be found on my website.
