IIBA’s BABOK Guide and PMI’s Business Analysis for Practitioners Guide


Presenters Adam McClellan and Cheryl Lee discuss the release of both the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA)’s long-awaited A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK Guide) v3 and the Project Management Institute (PMI)’s Business Analysis for Practitioners. While both represent interesting developments in the field of business analysis, they also provide lots of information to process. There’s no need to go it alone!

Learn about the differences between the two guides, how both guides compare to the previous version of the BABOK Guide, and where all this might be going.

Cheryl Lee (CBAP, PMP, PMI-PBA) has conducted many workshops, classes and seminars, including presenting at Project World/Business Analyst World in Toronto. She has served as a director at large for the IIBA Toronto Chapter where she facilitated CBAP study groups for chapter members, and she is currently the cofounder and chair of the PMI – Southern Ontario Chapter Business Analysis Branch. Lee is also a strong believer of practicing what she preaches and, therefore, continues to consult as a project manager or business analyst while she teaches project management and business analysis courses at Global Knowledge.

Adam McClellan has more than a decade of experience as a project professional, including stints as a business architect and business analyst. As a Project Management Professional, Certified ScrumMaster and Six Sigma Green Belt, he brings a focus on high-quality solutions and timely delivery to his work, and he has experienced first-hand the valuable knowledge and enlightening conversations to be had at all levels of an organization.
