Introduction to Business Analysis
DescriptionThis is an IIBA endorsed course, dedicated to studying the fundamentals of business analysis according to the BABOK Guide 3.0. The training elaborates on the key concepts of business analysis and essentials of the Business Analyst profession. It provides an overview of business analysis tasks, techniques, and perspectives. In addition it explains IIBA certification requirements and methods of preparation.
The BABOK Guide is an internationally recognized standard for the practice of business analysis. It summarizes the experience of leading business analysts around the world and describes 30 major tasks of business analysis, along with 50 techniques that are commonly used for solving these tasks.
The major challenge with self-studying the BABOK Guide is that, when describing the typical tasks of business analysis, it does not explain when and how one should perform these tasks. It assumes that business analysts shall be able to answer these questions on their own, based on their personal experience and specifics of a particular project. Besides that, the BABOK Guide provides very few examples that might help analysts make connections between the theoretical knowledge and their daily activities.
The purpose of this course is to overcome that challenge. Studying the key concepts of business analysis and reviewing the content of the BABOK Guide is accompanied by detailed explanations based on real-life examples from both the instructor’s personal experience and best practices. Participants will also take part in a variety of exercises that help consolidate their understanding.
