Why Should You Get Business Analyst Certification?

What is at the root of most failed software projects? The development? The testing? No. Ask around and you will find that the most common answer is “the requirements”. Does this mean that business analysts are incapable of writing good requirements? If it were that simple, we could just do some quick requirement writing training and be done with it.

In reality, problems with requirements are myriad. The problems generally start with a customer who doesn’t really know what they want (but they know what they don’t want when they see it!). From there the problems just cascade – schedules are too tight, priorities are shifting, changes are made without the business analyst being consulted, the requirements are not clear enough for implementation….

IQBBA business analyst certification is designed to help address the problems with requirements gathering and implementation. It takes a full lifecycle approach and explains the business analyst’s involvement throughout the project initiation, development, testing and deployment. Even if you’re not a business analyst, you will find this information useful because everyone is affected by the requirements and the only way to have a good project is to have a good understanding of the requirements.

If you’re Agile, you still have the need to document requirements in stories, develop them through the iterations and track them. It’s the same tasks, just with different tools and different levels of formality. IQBBA is the perfect solution.

Take a look at the IQBBA business analyst certification. Learn more about good requirements practices. While the requirements world will not transform magically overnight, implementing good practices can start now and those practices can evolve into a more complete requirements process. After all, we all want good requirements don’t we? IQBBA business analyst certification can help.
