Course description

When exploring what it means to be a business analyst, it’s vital to have a good sense of business knowledge in order to perform effectively within a business, industry, organization, solution, and methodology. Take a closer look at how business knowledge enables the business analyst to understand the overarching concepts that govern the structure, benefits, and value of the situation as it relates to a change or need.


This course is best suited for individuals with 2 years or more experience within business, business analysis, or a project/reporting analyst capacity. This course assumes that you are familiar with the BABOK® guide and its associated principles, but is not required.
