A business analyst is a key resource for any project. There could be one analyst on the team, or many. The role of the business analyst is truly to determine alternative solutions in solving business problems, and to validate that the solution actually delivered on expectations.
When we think of successful companies, we think of those that have been able to deliver on what they promised. When organizations don't, is when they struggle. If you look deeper, that failure was probably due to the organization or project team taking their eye off the goal and ended up delivering something that wasn't aligned with expectations. Unfortunately, this happens all the time! You have to gain control of how your strategic projects are being executed and you do this through excellence in business analysis skills.
Do you have analysts in your organization that are focused on seeing your initiative actually achieved the results you expected? The need for business analysts around the globe is expected to increase nearly 20% over the next 10 years.
There is a new certification available through the Project Management Institute, called the PMI-PBA certification.
