Need to learn more about business analysis after PMI®Global Congress?
If you attended PMI®Global Congress in Phoenix last month, you had the opportunity to experience some outstanding presentations in the Business Analysis and Requirements (BAR) Track as well as collaborate with a host of talent at the Open Jam sessions. There was definitely a lot of interest and excitement around business analysis.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the conference, there is still much more planned for those interested in learning more about business analysis and its importance in driving project success. As announced at the conference, PMI will be publishing its first standard covering business analysis later this year. Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide will provide guidance for practitioners who are looking for how to get started or how to improve a current business analysis practice within their organization.
The practice guide will cover the tasks and activities in business analysis from pre-project Needs Assessment through post-project Solution Evaluation. The big value behind this practice guide is that material is presented in a simple and straightforward manner. Examples are provided throughout to help provide visual context to the techniques and models as they are discussed. The practice guide was built off a substantial amount of research and aligns strongly to the role delineation study conducted for the PMI-PBA certification exam.
Business Analysis for Practitioners will be available for free download for six months from PMI’s Requirements Management Knowledge Center of Excellence web page in December. The guide will also be available in print form for purchase from PMI’s online bookstore. The date is nearing, so keep checking back here for more information.
