Most of my previous projects have been developed and delivered working closely with colleagues in government, education and research roles. Sectors I’ve worked with include State and National governments, Higher Education, Defence, Construction, Agriculture and Health.
In some cases, such as the Australia Indonesia Centre Foresighting Project, I co-managed the program design and business case development, leading to commissioning of expert teams from CSIRO in delivery and reporting. In these cases I supported the project oversight and quality assurance steps throughout delivery.

Roles and Responsibilities of a Business Intelligence Analyst
by Megan Power with contributions from Chris Ong
The business world has never been more reliant on business intelligence capability.
The rise in data analyst employment in the US and the recent call in Australia to ‘teach coding to kids in schools’, suggests an understanding that a future workforce will need to tap into the magic of data and make it meaningful.
One challenge for business leaders, who will continue to need to harness internal information for performance analysis, is the increasing need to also test; ‘what next?’, ‘what if?’ and ‘what’s out there?’ scenarios. As global online business and consumer led markets in goods and services grow, relevant external information and trend analysis are key to ongoing business competitiveness.
The challenge for all business is that disruption, including machine learning, artificial intelligence and Big Data analytics capabilities, is the new norm. Businesses can expect the need to access and apply intelligence in the next five years to continue to expand. Fortunately new online tools and specialist BI start-ups are filling the current capacity and capability gap in data analytics.
