BA114 The Competencies of a Business Analyst

Certificate Track: Business Analysis

Knowing how to apply the tools and techniques of business analysis does not guarantee that a person will become a valued analyst. How the analyst carries out the work is nearly as important as the work itself. Participants discuss and experiment with several behaviors, characteristics, knowledge, and personal qualities that support the practice of business analysis. They have the opportunity to complete a specially designed questionnaire that will help them evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses and prepare an action plan for personal development.

The course will also take a look at software tools that are available to help analysts do their job, including analytically focused tools as well as the emerging collaborative tools available "in the cloud."
