Registration for the 7th Annual IIBA Columbus BA CONference is OPEN!

As promised, this year's edition will be bigger than ever.

We are adding a second day of conference activities.

On Thursday, September 21, we will hold four all-day workshops.
Deeply immerse yourself in one of four tracks:

  • Agile Story Writing

  • Facilitation

  • Big Data

  • Organizational Change Management.

There are only 30 slots available per session, once these are sold out, we will not be able to increase attendence. Big shout out to Improving for being our Workshop Sponsor and helping to get the second day of the conference off the ground!

*** Note *** Capacity for the Story Writing class has been expanded, however, this is now a hard limit. Once the new headcount number is reached we will not be able to add any additional attendees ***

Friday, September 22nd will be the traditional conference. Kicking off the conference will be the morning Keynote:


Another change, based on conference feedback, is more breakout sessions. We have eliminated the afternoon keynote and have added a fourth set of breakouts. This means we will have at least 28 breakout sessions.

Themes for this year's breakouts will be:

  • Change Management

  • BI/Big Data

  • Agile

  • Career Path

  • Miscellaneous
