It was the end of 2008, an ideal time of the year to have good intentions. Mine was to develop a seminar about business analysis for business intelligence because echoes from IT and business people told me there was a market for this product. So, what do you do when you develop seminar content? You look for literature. You type “business analysis for business intelligence” in a search engine and you get… not very much in 2008.
That’s when I had my Edmond Hillary moment. When he was asked why he climbed the Mount Everest, he replied: “because it is there”. I made a quick scan of the reference books in my library and the new material I needed to study and made a book proposal to the Taylor and Francis Group in early 2009. “We’ll send you a contract proposal” was the short answer. From then on until August 2012, it was hard work. Remember that when you think of copying the book.
