Portland Metro

IIBA Chapter


Welcome to the IIBA's Portland Metro Chapter Website. 



Next Chapter Meeting: Tuesday, November 18th

Speaker: Jennifer C. Colburn

Topic: Dynamic Duos: Batman & Robin, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, PMs & BAs!

Learn how PMs & Bas can become a dynamic duo to prevent scope creep, reduce project risks and rework and achieve synergy on their projects. Research shows that Requirements Management matters as much as Project Management. Delivering a quality product that meets the business needs is just as important as delivering it on time and on budget. The complimentary aspects of PMs and BAs will be explored and tips on how PMs and BAs can work together to ensure successful projects will be discussed.

Jennifer is a Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) and certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP). Jennifer served on the Board of the Louisville IIBA Chapter and was a member of the IIBA Competency Model Committee.
