Finally, part 6 of the presentation to the IIBA® (International Institute of Business Analysis TM) Cincinnati Chapter and the Bluegrass IIBA® Chapter.
NEW workshop: Lean Business Analysis for Lean Requirements – Simply Put!
Helping Product Owners and Business-side Teams Discover and Write Requirements, User Stories, Features, Acceptance Tests, Scenarios, and Examples
About Part 6: In this video, I will take a look at the current and future (in my not so humble opinion) landscape of the Business Analyst profession.
Unfortunately, there is no common definition for the job position of a Business Analyst. In addition, many positions that need business analysis skills have a totally different job title. Not only that, but there are two very different types of Business Analysts – one deals with finances and the other with information technology. But even for the IT Business Analyst the skills needed vary widely. Some job requirements are purely focused on requirements definition while others require software testing skills too. Can it get any more confusing than that? In this final part of the presentation, I will try to make some sense of your current and future career options.
