Take Your Insights Further

The Analyst Catalyst blog is dedicated to the practice of business analysis and its professionals. Talented writers with a business analysis story to tell are always welcome to contribute.

All blog content should be original and not previously published or AI-generated/assisted. While we encourage a variety of voices and perspectives, below are some guidelines you may find helpful. 

Aim for between 600 and 800 words. Your writing style should be conversational, direct, and informative. A dash of humour always helps, but too much jargon doesn’t. 

Organize your content into sections to improve readability. Avoid overly long paragraphs and use bullet points sparingly. When including someone else’s work, credit that person or embed a link to the source (bonus points if you do both). 

When it comes to topics, your imagination is the only limit. If you want to narrow it down, we feel these resonate the most with readers:

  • Agile and Product Ownership Analysis 
  • Cybersecurity Analysis 
  • Business Data Analytics 
  • Careers (development, interviews, job hunting, resources, tips) 
  • Digital Transformation (AI, customer experience, open source, automation) 

Before you get started, download the Analyst Catalyst Blog Template and write in the space provided. We’ll take care of the rest!
