A study done by IAG, has shown that only about half of major projects with average level business analysts succeed (56% to be exact). That number increases to 88% when skilled or above average business analysts are involved. Being average is not enough to get the job done anymore.
This course gives techniques and practice drills to help gain the most essential skills to quickly be an above average business analyst. Our goal isn't to develop every skill a business analyst should have; instead, I am to give you the most productive skills and the ability to use them in days instead of decades.
The purpose of this course is NOT to explain or walk you through all the different parts of what being a business analyst is. The purpose of this course is to give you skills that you can learn and use today that will make you a better business analyst tomorrow.
Note: When I say tomorrow, I do not mean next month or next year. I mean the day after today.

I have spent the last 8 years as a business analyst tackling a wide range of projects from large scale initiatives like corporate intranets and full company integrations to smaller projects like single purpose applications and process optimizations.
During that time I became a certified business analyst, earned my Masters Degree in User Experience Design and worked closely with my business analyst team to revamp and re-energize the entire business analysis process at my company.
I spend a lot of my time focused on how I can make myself and my peers better as business analysts by building ourselves and enhancing our processes. I read about it, talk about it, blog about it, and have been featured in the International Institue of Business Analyst newsletter about it.
