- BAs & PMs - Better Together

The BA’s project role is to help set the scope for the project activity during the early stages of a project. The BA works with the PM, or acts as the PM in the early stages, to uncover the business need, develop requirements, validate requirements and work with subject matter experts to determine the changes to be made. Often, these changes are identified by a review of the as-is processes, creation of the to-be processes and highlighted gaps between the two. The gaps are used to determine what the project should provide. This is what can then be used by the PMs to create a work breakdown structure and a project plan. It can also be used in real-time for agile projects.

 

 - PBA - PMI Certification

A PMI-PBA® certification (PMI® Professional in Business Analysis) is one of the fastest growing in the business analysis and project management industries. Business analysis has become a critical competency of project management, and the PMI-PBA certification can help advance your career. If you work with project teams and manage requirements or product development, or if you're a project or program manager who performs business analysis in your role, then the PMI-PBA certification is right for you.
