But we are here to change this, by having Amardeep Modi, an experienced analyst on the show who is giving us a "look behind the scenes" of the analyst business. Amar is a Vice...

Ep. 15 - Strategic Process Consulting: Zach Bennett

New tools like Process Mining and Task Mining make it sound as if you don’t need other tools and techniques anymore, but quite the opposite is the case - traditional analysis techniques are still needed to support all phases of the...
