What are Business Analysis Skills and Business Analysis Certifications?
by Darrel Raynor
Recently, we have been asked to define Business Analysis and to explain the value to organizations of Business Analyst (BA) certifications and skills. How do they build productivity both individually and for your organization? Let’s define the term "BA,” since there are several vastly different areas called "business analysis” - in this context, we mean BA skills relating to:

 

  • Requirements
  • Projects
  • Stakeholder relationships
  • Specifications
  • Products
  • Solutioning
  • Testing, and
  • Training

Most BA projects are in IT, App, and new product development, and occur in all industries and organization sizes. Note: we are not addressing financial business analysis or analysis of businesses to determine a selling price. (See below for BA skills discussion)

BA Certifications

Most people recognize the Project Management Institute PMI® and the Project Management Professional PMP® certification. Few are yet aware of the International Institute of Business Analysis IIBA® or the Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) or Certification of Competency in Business Analysis™ (CCBA®). These represent experience, study, and passing an exam much like the PMP®.
