Not a practical approach to Business Analytics

I work in a Business Analytice consulting practice, and have completed over 300 projects, but I always continue to learn more. However, it is my opinion that the approach in this book lean more to a academic or theoretically approach rather than the practical approach I see clients implementing.

BA Manifesto

Reads as a business case for the Executive decision makers on the business justification for the business Analyst role and their tools including dashboards, KPIs, and data warehouse infrastructure. It espouses a delivery model of think big, start small, and deliver fast to build quick wins and build momentum on delivery of projects.
