Wyyzzk, Inc. and Procuit Inc. Bring Professional Development Services to Business Analysts in Information Technology
Ann Arbor, Mi. – June 16, 2009 -- Wyyzzk, Inc. and Procuit Inc. have announced a joint venture to release a new membership website for the professional development of IT Business Analysts called ResourcesForBusinessAnalysts.com. This site will use modern cognitive techniques to aid in the development and retention of professional knowledge, as well as offering traditional features such as papers, articles, social networking, and job aids.
"We are making Geri's vision a reality," says Thomas Meloche, CEO of Procuit Inc. "For the past 6 years Geri has been envisioning high quality information, tools, and training for Business Analysts. Geri's desire is to create exceptional analysts, who stand out in the crowd and are dramatically more productive. I am excited to be working with her to leverage and extend Procuit's social/training platform to support the creation of a unique training and knowledge sharing service."
Geri Schneider Winters is well-known in the software industry for her book "Applying Use Cases: A Practical Guide", which teaches Business Analysts how to write software requirements in the form of Use Cases. A working Business Analyst herself, and a trainer of Business Analysts, she knows the issues faced in the day-to-day work, and that traditional training is not effective in the long term.
A well-known problem in education is that most students who attend professional training or take on-line courses will forget almost all of what they have learned within 30 days of the course. Another problem is that the training is not specific to the individual.
"We started with the idea of a training site that would be customized to the individual," says Geri Schneider Winters, President/CEO of Wyyzzk, Inc. "One of the most exciting features about the Procuit platform is it tracks and knows what an individual is remembering and what they are forgetting. Then it prepares individualized workbooks and quizzes for each Business Analyst. This ensures each Business Analyst is exactly up-to-date on what he or she needs to know to be successful. Other features we have added to the site include papers, articles, job aids, and social networking to provide everything we can think of to help the individual Business Analyst be successful. Our goal is a site that Business Analysts will come to every day, and each person will find what he or she needs at that point in his or her career to be effective in the job."
Thomas Meloche is well-known in the Agile community. A founder of Menlo Innovations in Ann Arbor, MI, he was an early and successful adopter of Agile techniques for software development.
"The most important thing we can do is listen to our customers," added Meloche. "I know this from developing software, and am seeing the same message now in the business community with the idea of Lean Startups. It is a good idea for software and a good idea for business. Because what someone else needs to be successful is not something we can always guess, we want the members to be involved, to tell us how the services should evolve over time."
The initial release of the site will be free. It will include papers, articles, social networking, and the Procuit knowledge platform. In addition, pages and features to-be-developed will be included. Each of the to-be-developed parts of the site will include a voting mechanism for members to indicate how important it is to them. A conversation thread for each to-be-developed part will allow members to give direct feedback on what exactly they want and need.
