The most often repeated response to the question – What is business analysis? – would probably be some variation of – “Business Analysis is gathering requirements from business and transferring the same to the stakeholders. Business Analyst is a bridge between business and IT.”
In my opinion, there cannot be a more myopic definition of business analysis than this. Every time I hear this definition, I find myself imagining a business analyst to probably be a glorified post man or a stenographer!
Is Business analysis really just about gathering requirements? Is a Business Analyst just a bridge between business and IT? Or is there something more to business analysis?

This course will shatter a few myths about business analysis.
Using a game, several examples and humorous anecdotes, this course will provide you with a holistic understanding of the discipline called business analysis.

By the end of this ~110 min course, you will:
  • Realize that Business Analysis is a very significant discipline that is applicable to every job role
  • Understand that Business Analysis is really about solving business problems
  • Become convinced that Business Analysis is indispensable for project success
  • Understand the Business Analysis Life Cycle
  • Know the various project scenarios where BAs are involved
  • Gain an initial understanding of IIBA® and BABOK v3
  • Understand critical competencies required to be successful as a Business Analyst
