As planned before the close of 2014, PMI has published its first global standard in business analysis. Complementing the launch of the PMI-PBASM certification in September, Business Analysis for Practitioners: a Practice Guide, further builds out PMI’s resources in the business analysis and requirements space. This practice guide provides a very thorough look at business analysis by presenting the tasks, knowledge, and skills that are utilized to conduct this important work. Leveraging the extensive research from the role delineation study completed for PMI in 2013 as well as the experience of a number of industry thought leaders and experts in the field, this practice guide delivers a wealth of proven and common practices to help organizations and practitioners apply business analysis successfully.
This practice guide presents the work of business analysis across 5 domains; Needs Assessment, Business Analysis Planning, Requirements Elicitation and Analysis, Traceability and Monitoring, and Solution Evaluation. Content is provided in a straightforward and clear manner, accompanied by examples throughout, which demonstrate the concepts visually. The guide is valuable to anyone who performs business analysis, works or employs business analysts, starting out in the profession, or building upon their existing knowledge of the practice. Additionally, for those interested in pursuing the PMI-PBASM certification, the practice guide now serves as an additional reference to help prepare for the exam.
The Business Analysis for Practitioners: a Practice Guide will be available to the community for free download for six months. PMI membership is not required to download the guide. Download a copy today and begin your journey to better business analysis!
