PMI-PBA certification

Business Analysis is one of the critical disciplines in an organization as it is the business analyst that helps understand the need and document them as problem or opportunity statements. Most leading organizations continue to strengthen the practice of business analysis. One of the ways organizations are achieving higher levels of maturity in the practice of business analysis is by aligning their business analysis practice with mostly IIBA standard called the BABOK standard however they are also leveraging the PMI’s Business Analysis standard as a reference point. 

Organizations continue to look for business analysts who are CBAP or PBA certified. Becoming certified not only helps you move your career in a new direction but also opens avenues for you in other industries as the practice or standard of business analysis is standardized with core knowledge areas remaining the same across all the industries.
