Business analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development. The person who carries out this task is a Business Analyst, or BA.

When inefficient business processes are discovered, the business analyst makes recommendations for business process improvements. If the recommended solution is approved, the business analyst works with project and operational teams to implement the recommended solutions.

Education Path

To enhance your skills and credibility as a business analyst, the following courses are very relevant and will increase your practical skills:

  • Process Mapping
  • Lean Process Improvement
  • Facilitation and Critical Thinking Skills
  • Gathering Requirements
  • Writing Use Cases
  • Fundamentals of Project Management
  • Influencing Without Authority


Over the past couple of years, Business Analysis has become more recognized as a professional career. This has been supported by the creation of the International Institute for Business Analysis in 2003.

Professionals who want to be formally recognized, and receive a credential in this area, will choose to take the Certified Business Analyst Professional (CBAP) path.

The best way to prepare for writing the CBAP Exam is to take an intensive Exam Preparation course. The Bay3000 course prepares you to pass this difficult exam.

Passing the CBAP® Exam

This course is compliant with the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) and addresses the core concepts, knowledge areas, underlying fundamentals, and the context of business analysis as described by that guide. The objectives of this course are to introduce participants to IIBA Business Analysis certification requirements and to provide participants with a solid grounding in and understanding of the materials covered on the exam and in the recently updated Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK). The course includes practice exams, and tips and techniques for writing the exam.

This course is offered in our public workshop calendar if you are able to attend in person, via online (e-learning) classes if you are not able to travel, as well as on-site for your organization. The benefit of inviting us to teach on-site is that the class can then become a team learning event and can potentially offer cost efficiencies (vs open enrollment).

Other IIBA certification exam prep courses are available. Please call or write for more details.
