Many business books are written by MBA types that have their way of explaining the complex concepts of business analysis. These books and the business analysis industry in general tend to focus on the business side of things, so it is not hard to see that a book on business analysis would be an interesting read for any business person.
Unfortunately, that’s not the way most of us go about understanding business. We go about it in two ways. The first is through experience. We know the important concepts, rules, and theories that make up the business world, and we spend lots of time reading and studying about them. The second way is through books.
There are many books written about business, but only a few about business analysis. The majority of business books tend to be about the business side of things, which is usually not very informative. If you want to understand business, you need to know how the business world works, so you need to read books about business analysis.
Business books tend to be written by people who have no business analysis knowledge whatsoever, so there are very few of those. Most business books deal with the business side of things, which is basically how to do business. The business side of the business is often considered useless by most business people; however, it is very important in the long run. Some of the most important concepts and rules in business are also the least understood, so don’t get sucked into the buzz around them.
There are a few books on business analysis out there, but some are just plain wrong in the way they are written. I actually liked the book “The Business of Business Analysis” by John P. Frey, which you can find online here. I found it very easy to understand, but also very vague and not very useful. Another book I like is “The Psychology of Business Analysis” by Robert K. Merton.
I’m not sure I agree with the “what I do” vs. “who I am” argument, but the point is that you have to explain yourself. This is not an easy task if you have no idea what you’re talking about, so you’ll need to know some basics. In the end, you’ll be better off with a book than a lecture or a blog post, but a good book is worth the effort.
I believe in “business analysis” to be a pretty broad term. To be more specific, it means a process of studying the business operations of a company, its customers, competitors, suppliers, products, and other factors that affect its daily operations. Often, you can learn a lot by simply studying a company’s operations.
To be a good business analyst, you have to know what a customer is looking for, how its customers are working, what the competitive environment is, and what the company is trying to do. Business analysis in the modern era means looking at the whole of the company to make sure everything is working. There are many different ways to look at a company and analyze its operations, and if you spend enough time studying the company and its operations, you can learn a lot.
If you read a book on business analysis you’re reading a book on the business world itself. And if you read a book on business analysis, you’re reading a book on business. I know the titles of those books are different, but I think that you get the point.
The book you read is on business analysis.
