Imagine this scenario: you've studied hard for the CBAP®and today is the day you will finally sit for it. You are feeling good about what you know and are actually excited to get this testing over with. While taking the exam, you use your speed reading technique to help you quickly understand and answer the questions. You are amazed at how fast you are getting through the questions. You feel good because you don't have to read all the answer choices because you can find the "right" answer after reading the first two choices. Everything feels good and you hit that last submit button.
One of the great tool to use when studying for the CBAP or CCBA is to have a big picture of the entire BABOK. We're giving away this high level summary to help you on your journey.
Now that you are ready for recertification as a CBAP, let me take you back to the application process. Do you remember how long it took for you to document your experience as required by IIBA? Do you remember wishing that you had known about this process ahead of time to avoid racking your brain about BA tasks you had completed ten years ago?
Step 1: Read the CBAP® Handbook. You want to understand the qualification for sitting for the certification. This handbook provides a thorough explanation on the experiences needed to qualify, the educational requirements... etc
Step 2: Begin documenting your work experience. This is the most challenging task as it requires that you look back 10 years and recall information about each of the projects you've worked on. You will need to remember the project name, description, hours worked on each projects, hours spend on business analysis tasks on each projects... etc
As some of you may already know, the CCBA® has officially been announced and the exam is coming out soon. This is a new IIBA® certification for competent business analysts.
Who is a competent business analyst?
A competent business analyst is one who has invested time to develop their business analysis skills and expertise but has not yet achieved the level of experience required to sit for the CBAP® exam.
This certification is great for developers who have performed business analysis tasks for a minimum amount of time, or quality assurance analysts, or any other professional who has performed some business analysis task in the last 7 years.
Why should you consider this designation?
Dear Diary: The application is now finished and after having it reviewed a couple of time by an official Certified Business Analysis ProfessionalTM(CBAP®), I’m waiting on the results to return. I’ve documented over 11000 hours for the committee to pick and choose from for acceptance, so there shouldn’t be much of a problem. Reviewing the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®) in the last few weeks has become overwhelming. How am I going to process all this information?
“I’ve been an analyst for a long time now and have finally come to the decision that I don’t want to be just an analyst. I want to be a really good analyst. I’m no longer satisfied with taking the word of someone else as to why things are done a certain way. I not only want to know why, I want to be part of creating a better solution. I want to be respected for my opinion. I want people to know that my opinions are rooted in facts and not just some wild hair that someone got reacting to a situation. I want to be recognized for the things I have done, the countless hours I’ve spent making processes better or providing solutions to problems. Now, what?”
