Business Analysis for the Project Manager
This 2-day course is designed to give Project Managers and project practitioners a better understanding of Business Analysis. They will learn how to employ business analysis tools, techniques, and approaches for better project outcomes. Challenges associated with role definitions, gaps and touchpoints between the PM and BA roles – to reduce waste and improve efficiency and benefits for the organization are identified. The course helps participants evaluate contrasting perceptions in the roles of the PM and the BA, define the roles they should fulfill, and describe how to ensure the PM/BA partnership is maintained throughout. Duplication of effort, waste and misunderstandings that lead to failure are identified and strategies to overcome these challenges are discussed.
This course is not meant to be a comprehensive account of business analysis concepts, but rather it covers specific parts of the IIBA’s BABOK, Knowledge Areas of the PMI’s PMBOK® and the PMI’s PBA Certification - as they specifically relate to the need for collaboration between the PM and the BA.
This course incorporates discussions, exercises, thought-provoking conversations and real-world examples. Participants receive a copy of the book Effective PM-BA Role Collaboration (J. Ross, 2015), which serves as the blueprint of this program. The course was created by the lead co-author of the book, Ori Schibi
