Having been a Business Analyst (BA) for many years, I was given the opportunity in 2015 to step into a role that I considered new territory. I accepted a project assignment as an OCM Practitioner/Analyst for a multi-year program, with multiple projects, that was introducing massive changes to the client. There were both enterprise-wide changes and cultural shifts that were required to support the future growth of the company.
It’s no surprise that our workforce is changing. If your workplace is like most, a quick glance around the office will likely reveal that there are fewer Baby Boomer workers than in the past and more Gen X and Millennial workers. Canadian Business reports that Millennials are becoming the most sizable working generation in Canada, completely overtaking the other generations of employees.
