Business Analysis Fundamentals

Welcome to the ‘Business Analysis demo session. In this session, you will learn the fundamentals of business analysis discipline, role of a business analyst, how our training program is structured and most importantly how we can help you transform your career into a successful business analyst role. Thanks for watching this video.

In today’s competitive environment, business analyst’s role is no longer of simply ‘A bridge between Business and IT’. There has been a paradigm shift in the role of business analyst in recent years. In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common organizational goal. Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role. This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst. In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, we have included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with.

    I think that stakeholder isn't just someone who is impacted by the outcome of the project but by the project itself in any way no?

  6. William Demery | January 1, 2017 at 7:43 pm |

    This was great information!

  7. Steve Darlington | January 1, 2017 at 8:12 pm |

    I have to say it is almost completely useless. A business exists to maximise its profits over its life. End of. There is no mention of profitability or how to measure it anywhere. And yes, I have been involved in business analysis for a long time including as an auditor, a financial analyst, a principal lecturer on business studies and finance degrees and masters programmes and as a finance director. I defy anyone to watch this video and go away and apply any of it to improving financial performance in a real business.

  19. Aaron Rogers | January 2, 2017 at 1:41 am |

    too much theory good for someone looking for CBAP but not enough real world simplicity

  20. saumya ranjan | January 2, 2017 at 1:56 am |

  25. Oliver Harris | January 2, 2017 at 5:11 am |

    Well if your spoken English is on par with your written that would explain why. That is the perfect English accent and how it is supposed to be spoken. Learn English and stop writing stupid comments just because your English is appalling.

    A business analyst is involved in multiple disciplines so it's important they are not only knowledgeable in those fields, but they should also be current in the political and other environments their company may be exposed.
