    Hi Tom,

    I have 6 yrs + experience in banking, majorly forex and corporate salary. Recently I have joined one IT firm as BA, but I have not done any course as such. I have also done my MBA.

    Also I finding it slightly difficult, since working culture/environment is completely different. My question is does technical knowledge is compulsory for performing BA role…?

    Request you to help me with some kind of online course.


    • Tom Hathaway says:

      As a general rule, you do not need technical knowledge to perform business analysis activities. It does, however, depend on your specific job description as every organization does not use the job title Business Analyst uniformly. In some organizations, the BA comes from the IT side and takes the position previously called “System Analyst”. In those organizations, the BA needs technical knowledge to survive. Our eBook Business Analysis Defined will give you a much better idea as to the responsibilities of the typical BA role and responsibilities. You can use that knowledge to defend your position against your colleagues and peers.

    Hi Tom,

    I have 9 years of experience in Banking industry mainly focused on compliance & Forex. Now am trying for a BA role in a Financial Consulting Firm. I do not have any prior experience in BA but have a basic knowledge. Is it compulsory to go for a BA training & then try for a BA role in Consulting firm.
    Please assist me.

    Thank You.

    • Tom Hathaway says:

      Obviously, I do not know the requirements of the specific consulting firm with whom you would work. Generally speaking, the financial industry is very interested in certification (e.g., CBAP from the IIBA). In most industries, it suffices if you can prove that you can talk the talk AND walk the walk. Our free videos can help you with the prior, only training/mentoring and doing will get you to the second. You might start off by taking our Business Analysis Skills Evaluationto get a feel for how you can express your experience in BA terms.

      Hope this helps and I wish you success in your endeavors.

    I am having arnd 8+yrs of exp in software development and recently I completed my ex-MBA in general mgmt and Wanted to move to Business role side….so my company is offering me a BA role? Shld I go for it?

    • Tom Hathaway says:


      The role of BA is very different from that of the developer. It can be a difficult switch because the BA deals primarily in uncertainty while developers need concrete direction to write software. It is your choice as to whether the BA role feels right for you.
