The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO technique
This course makes use of The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO technique – a method I’ve developed over my years of experience in the industry training and managing Business Analysts. This technique will help ensure you with total comprehension of the topic at hand and maximum information retention long after the course is finished.
- TEACH – You first learn the concept, in detail, from the ground up. But I won’t simply teach you the concept in isolation – you’ll learn HOW and WHEN to use it too.
- SHOW – Once you fully understand the concept, we enhance that by walking you step-by-step through real-world examples – so you can see exactly how the concept would pan out if you were to apply it in the real world.
- DO – Firmly cement everything you’ve learned so far and put your new knowledge to the test by completing the included activities and quizzes. Validate you’ve fully understood the concept and greatly increase your ability to retain the information you’ve learned.
Why should I enroll?
Process flowcharting is an essential part of businesses at every level – since you will be seeing and working with process flowcharts no matter your role, this course will be useful to you even if you are not a Business Analyst.

The BA Guide | Jeremy Aschenbrenner: Business Analysis Trainer, Best Selling Instructor
Come learn with more than 415,000 students from around the world!
Hello! My name is Jeremy Aschenbrenner, but many know me better as The BA Guide, and I’m happy you are here.
I’m a veteran Business Analyst with thousands of projects completed throughout my career. I’ve managed business analysis projects for companies in diverse industries including health care, telecom, automotive, transportation, consumer packaged goods, car rental agency, food and beverage, financial services, consulting, and more.
Through personal experience, I quickly learned that business analysis can be confusing and even intimidating. There’s endless business jargon, technical terms, techniques, and methodologies to learn, and countless visual diagrams, artifacts, elicitation sessions, interfaces, and KPIs to wrap your head around. I’ve been there and learned all of that. Many years ago, I also learned a valuable lesson about myself: I really enjoy teaching others. This was the inspiration for The BA Guide.
Here is where I come in and offer guidance.
I take that broad world of business analysis and build a structure and processes within it. I then break down those individual segments until they are easy to understand by using real-life examples and scenarios to make them relatable. Finally, to help solidify and reinforce your knowledge and understanding of these key concepts and processes, I follow up with activities and quizzes.
Whether you’re an aspiring or current Business Analyst, The BA Guide courses are created with you, the learner, in mind. By design, the courses I’ve created are optimized for flexible learning in video format so you can learn at your own pace, when it’s convenient for you.
If your goal is to explore the world of business analysis or upskill and advance your career, whether that be as a Business Analyst, an Agile Analyst, a Process Analyst, a Product Owner, an AMAZING Administrator, or anything in-between, I’d love to help.
