Wait a sec. I have a question.
Yes. You can become a Business Analyst. You will probably already be familiar with many of the technical skills taught, however, there will be additional techniques, such as elicitation techniques, that will assist you in moving out of a pure developer or tester role. Spend good time in understanding and knowing business analyst roles, tasks, responsibilities. Study and understand different domains and how they work. With good preparation, you can definitely become a business analyst.
It is an added advantage if you are aware of technical things but it is not mandatory to have technical hands-on. However, we recommend knowing what are the technologies available in the market and what sort of technologies are better for a particular software.
Usually this comes by experience. As a BA, you usually interact with developers, you need to make the best use of the time. As questions, know more about frameworks. You need to know – how code is written? But what technology, what framework? What are the other frameworks? Why this framework is applied? Why not another framework? Etc these questions will enable you to make techno-functional. Techno-Functional people have more demand in the job market.
Yes, that is valid.
Let’s go by an example –
(a)You want to hire a cook at your home if a person wants to join as cook at your home without having cooking experience, will you offer him/her a cook job?? NO, you will never offer a cook job to a person who doesn’t have cooking experience.
(b) In the same scenario, if the person states, he worked as a Waiter – person serves table at a restaurant (as the main role) and he helped the cook for few years and later he/she started cooking but the actual role was still Waiter. You will think of possibilities and directly do not reject him.
If that person defends with an example like, how he got cooking opportunity in the absence of chef and what all he prepared with the recipe – you may feel better and show confidence in that person.
The same thing applies to your BA role when you switch roles.
As per my experience, Business Analyst lifetime is around 8 years. Usually you will not find a business analyst with 9 years, 12 years, 15 years of experience. Business Analysts need to get into the next level. Ideally a Sr. BA will get promoted as Functional Consultant, Business Analysis Lead, Enterprise/Business Architect, Director/VP. Not only for Business Analyst, for any role like a developer, tester – there is a lifetime. There exists no developer with 15 years of experience. He/She needs to be elevated to Team Lead, Tech Lead or Technical Architect, etc.
Most of our business analysis courses cover soft skills, as communications skills are key for a BA; how to elicit requirements, understand the difference between a need and a want, understand what users say is what they mean etc. BACentric courses align with the underlying fundamental knowledge areas (which cover communication skills) of the BABOK®.
Our Business Analysis course is designed to give you a complete methodology for the role of a BA and equip you with tools and techniques to face any situation in your new role. The course provides grounding in the skills and techniques required to succeed as a BA – it is a fundamental course covering what you need to know to be a BA and giving you the tools to implement in the role straight away.
The maximum number of trainees per classroom is 5. We want all our trainees to get personal attention from the trainer and do well. With this strategy, the training session will be very interactive and more efficient.
Let’s understand this very clearly. Getting a job is a personal achievement that we all need to focus on collectively. We will put out our 100% in assisting you until you get into a company as a Business Analyst. Our workshop participants never needed more than 3 interviews to crack one. All you need is Communication skills, exposure to Business Analysis, and Handson experience in real-time projects.
Note – We have transformed 3200+ careers into Business Analysis so far and we are maintaining the record for the last 14 years but still we believe that it would be unethical for us to ‘guarantee’ something because it’s YOU who will have to face the interview. It’s all about your performance. But we will groom you, make you work as a Business Analyst on our client’s projects, analyze your performance, prepare you for the interview, push you towards that interview room, and tune you further till you crack something.
Please do not believe any typical institute/trainer who promises you for a job after training. We noticed that many BA aspirants got cheated like this. Learn from practitioners, not trainers who will claim that they will train you in 4 days. That’s absurd. Business Analysis is a practice-oriented profession. You CANNOT learn it on 4 weekends sitting 8 hours continuously as a school kid.
