Program Overview

Business Analysis is the practice of enabling change in the enterprise. Its scope encompasses not just a project, but even before a project begins and long after it is implemented. The role of the Business Analyst is therefore more significant than ever. Many projects have failed because requirements were not properly managed and solutions are not properly evaluated.

This 4-day course prepares the participant to take on the Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP)® Certification Exam and satisfies the 35 hours of education needed to apply for the exam. It is based on the A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge ® (BABOK ® Guide) version 3.0 and covers all the basic concepts, knowledge areas, tasks, and techniques used in performing the business analysis role. This course is also highly activity based – ensuring better retention of key concepts – making the participant a better Business Analysis Practitioner.
