Change Management Week

Everyday this week!

As a business analyst, we know that you’ve got your project planned to a T. We also know that this level of detail doesn’t come without a considerable time commitment to your position. Sometimes, this time commitment can leave little time for planning of our lives outside of the office.

This leaves some good news and some bad news:

  • Good news: most of you will get a nice long weekend to catch up on your personal lives.
  • Bad news: you actually do have to have something prepared for your Thanksgiving table!

Don’t worry, we did some research for you! Our team members combed through their family recipe boxes and found some of their favorites to share.
