Many professionals who have a responsibility to act as business analysts miss a structured orientation on how to work to bring better results to their organizations. Normally, BA learning is empirical, making mistakes several times until something works. It doesn't have to be that way. There is a Guide for the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide) that can be used by professionals who practice Business Analysis. Practice in a conscious and organized manner can leverage your career and differentiate you in the work environment.
Other professionals who do not formally act in the role of business analyst can also apply the knowledge of the BABOK® Guide presented in this course to leverage their careers by combining their performance with business expectations.
“What everyone wants is a professional capable of clearly identifying problems and finding the best solutions to those problems. In other words, a good business analyst ”.
Who should take this course?
The target student of this course is the professional who already practices BA in his work, but perhaps not in a completely structured way. He has already participated in projects that aim to improve business performance by creating new things (software, processes, rules, campaigns, training) or improving those that already exist, but he misses a structured approach to bridge the gap between needs that originated the projects and the solutions that were created.
In these projects, after a lot of effort, days worked, money spent, stress and battle to deliver the result, it seems that "this was not what the customer needed".
This professional in many companies is hired and allocated with the formal role of Business Analyst. But the simple name of the position described on the badge does not give him the necessary skills to act effectively on the role. Training is needed.
Business Analysis may certainly also be a differential for Business Consultants, Project Managers, Process Analysts, Quality Analysts, Systems Analysts, Requirements Analysts, Requirements Engineers, Corporate Architects, Software Architects, Programmers, and so many other professions that can benefit from a different look at the businesses they are serving.
If you are still a professional at the beginning of your career and would like to become a Business Analyst, you can take advantage of this course to guide you in your career avoiding you to go through a lot of suffering to learn “the easy path”.
If you are already a senior and quite experienced professional, this course will help you organize your knowledge and experiences by placing a certain formalism in your way of acting, helping you to work more consciously and effectively leaving you even more qualified to attend your customers.
What will I learn in this course?
This course contains conceptual and technical video lessons, with fun graphic illustrations and practical exercises with the instructor's answers so you can learn by doing.
At the end, you will be prepared to conduct a structured business analysis using globally recognized techniques to understand needs and design solutions that maximize value for all your customers.
The concepts learned in this course will enable you to conduct meetings between customers and solution providers in search of optimal and clearly defined solutions.
This competence will leverage your career and differentiate you as a professional, making you recognized as a key part in solving problems.
If you intend to obtain a professional certification in Business Analysis from IIBA ® (International Institute of Business Analysis), this course will also be the basis of your studies as it is fully based on the BABOK® Guide.
What will I be able to do at the end of the course?
At the end of this course, you will have a clear understanding about what are the tasks related to Business Analysis in an organization as defined in the BABOK® Guide and how these tasks can help businesses achieve better outcomes.
You will have at your disposal a set of techniques and tools that can assist you in: planning the business analysis; elicit information; manage requirements life cycle; conduct collaborative work, perform corporate strategy analysis; requirements analysis; defining design and evaluating solutions to a problem.
Finally, you will feel more secure and prepared to formally act as a business analyst or take a certification exam in Business Analysis.
