A BAwiki 2017 Year in Review

2017 was a busy year personally. I wrapped up a 3-year enterprise-level project; which led to me accepting a management position (managing a very small team of business analysts); I bought a house; and generally dealt with a number of the curve-balls that life throws at you.  All of which unfortunately meant that this site did not get nearly the attention I hoped.

On a positive note, my goal of writing content that has a longer shelf life and having this site act as a sort of reference resource seems to be working even with a bit of inattention.  2017 saw the following improvements in site metrics over 2016 (as measured by Google Analytics):

  • Individual users  were up just under 16% to roughly 56,000
  • Individual sessions were up a bit over 17% to 67,000
  • The bounce rate dropped 12% from 52% to 40%
  • The % of visitors who spent at least 5 minutes on the site was up 14%

Other interesting statistics include:

  • Over 82% of site visitors are using desktops, with 15% on mobile.
  • The U.S., U.K, India, Canada and Germany are the top 5 sources of traffic
  • And the following site pages remain the most visited:
    • RASCI Matrix
    • Context Diagram
    • Stakeholder Onion Diagram
    • Decomposition
    • VMOST Analysis
    • Stakeholder Communications Matrix

I am hoping in 2018 to get back to regular writing for this site and finally finishing some of the longer articles I have had in progress for a while.

Thank you again to all those who visit and find something of use here.  I remain committed to having no advertising on this site, so my only reward is your attention and the occasional positive comment.  🙂

May your 2018 be a story of success, both personal and professional.

Dave
