As a Business Analyst,

Key objectives are:

  • To generate performance estimating data (‘norms’ and ISA standards) in collaboration with the ISA Pre-construction team.

  • Other aspects of the norms will be to capture the data from other projects to identify opportunities on improving delivery across the business
  • Liaison with project teams from each ISA Programme to ensure that they are forecasting, monitoring, tracking and recording benefits.
  • Record ‘non-cashable’ benefits – ensure that personnel in their respective portfolios understand what ‘non-cashable’ benefits are and how they should be recorded; ensuring that the ‘non-cashable’ benefits are logged and are promoted to the wider teams.
  • Consolidate the benefits / savings that have been forecast and generated by each project team into the master ‘benefits’ tracker.
  • Communicate the ‘repeatable’ benefits (through presentations, posters, knowledge sharing events, and so on) to the wider ISA team.
  • Support the process of gathering monthly performance data from multiple stakeholders throughout the ISA organisation.
  • Support the compilation of all data into the standard ISA performance reporting templates.
  • Support the process of issuing the ISA performance reporting pack to the various stakeholders groups and ensure that the ISA performance reporting information is visually displayed at all ISA key locations.
