Positioning Yourself as an Expert BA in Your Organization

This video is for business analysis professionals who have put in several years of work but may not be advancing at a desired pace. It’s also for those who are new to the BA profession but don’t want to be viewed as inexperienced. I’ll be giving you some steps that will help with either of these situations by positioning yourself as an expert BA in your organization. 

Recommended BA Courses

IIBA Certification Exam Prep Class (CBAP)

The material covered in the BABOK Guide may seem straightforward to some but the design of the exam formatting makes it critical to have a more in-depth understanding of the concepts. Having discussions with a facilitator who can offer expert advice on what to look for on the exam will greatly increase your chances of passing the exam. The Business Analysis Doctor offers the best CBAP prep program out there! It includes instructor led training, realistic scenario-based and case study questions which are all essential to passing the exam. Not only does this program provide BABOK content but you will also get test writer and IIBA certification study group facilitator insight to ensure you have the information you need to pass the exam. 

IIBA Certification Exam Prep (CCBA)

 As mentioned above, understanding the BABOK Guide requires in-depth understanding of the concepts. While the CCBA is not quite as extensive as the CBAP, there is a fair amount of scenario-based questions that will be present on the exam. In addition to the instructor led training, the scenario-based sample exams, and test question rationale document that The Business Analysis Doctor offers in the CCBA prep course will definitely get you prepared for exam day. 

BA Essentials Master Class

I recommended this course for BAs who are struggling to get value out of their daily functions and activities? This course comes equipped with training videos, weekly emails, templates, online access to coarse materials, instructor feedback and a certificate of completion for 12 PDs/ CDUs/PDUs.  This step-by-step online training program will help you navigate your way through the world of business analysis

Use Cases and Wireframes

Use Cases and wireframes are two business analysis techniques that I get questions about the most. The Bridging the Gap use cases and wireframes training gives clear direction on how to construct these techniques and well as how to validate that they are complete. There are templates, swipe files and checklist to keep you on the right track. Highly recommended for BAs at all levels.
