IIBA Draws On Rich Global Business Analysis Leadership

IIBA Draws On Rich Global Business Analysis Leadership News

In a strategic drive to revitalise their endorsed education provider programme, the International Institute in Business Analysis (IIBA) has appointed South Africa based Business Change Academy as a core member of its Endorsed Education Provider (EEP) Advisory Board to provide insights and recommendations that will help shape future direction.

The revitalization initiative, from which the IIBA draws on rich global business analysis leadership, has mandated the Advisory Board to provide innovative solutions towards developing a more valuable EEP framework. The goal is to ultimately support the professional development of business analyst’s worldwide, through competency-based learning approaches, by actively engaging Endorsed Education Providers.

“We are both thrilled and honoured that the IIBA has asked us to play an active part in executing their strategy, one that brings together the agenda of influencing global business analyst professional development tactics that enable growth opportunities for all,” says Joe Newbert, MD of Business Change Academy.

The IIBA appoint Business Change Academy to advisory board on a history of strong synergy between the two organisations, with Joe having been a core member of the business analysis competency model development team as well as serving as a Non-Executive Director on the IIBA-SA board, and as such the collaboration is well poised to further the business analyst profession globally and reinvigorate the IIBA EEP initiative with fresh perspectives.

The EEP programme has two main objectives.

  1. It firstly enables the business analyst community to easily identify endorsed education providers and their endorsed training courses, as being aligned to the global standard for business analysis a Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide).
  2. Secondly, it provides a licensing mechanism to such education providers to properly use IIBA intellectual property including trademarks and BABOK® Guide content.

In further support of these objectives, Business Change Academy’s training philosophy is focused on building real-world analysis skills and, as a committed EEP, their IIBA Endorsed courses have been carefully designed to provide rich and immersive training experiences in full alignment with the BABOK.

Taking into consideration the diversity of specialisations in the profession, the International Diploma in Business Analysis is crafted in such a way that it encourages business analysts to choose modules relevant to their role and develop their careers in a way that suits their unique personal aspirations.

Raise Your Business Analyst Profile With A Guest Post

Raise Your Business Analyst Profile With A Guest Post News

Business Change Academy, South Africa’s sought after business analysis training provider, continues to innovate within the local business analyst community by opening an exciting opportunity for individuals to expand their horizons and raise their profile with a guest post that shares their business analysis story, insight, knowledge and expertise.

The South African business analysis community continues to receive global recognition, with international conference speakers routinely commending our level of professional maturity, yet when it comes to digital publication and online discussion South Africans appear much less vocal than their global peers.

Having steadily built South Africa’s premiere business analysis platform, Business Change Academy are opening up their popular blog and inviting business analysts to submit guest posts for publication with their large, engaged business analysis audience. 

Whilst blogging is not new, the concept of growing the South African business analyst voice within a learned, nurturing environment on a local portal is a first. The blogging programme will enable business analysts of all levels to stand on a digital stage and share their thoughts to promote growth, understanding and dialogue within the business analysis community.

Participants will be given the platform to:

  • Express themselves and share their passion with others
  • Gain valuable exposure to an engaged business analysis audience
  • Grow their authority as a business analyst professional

This is a terrific opportunity for business analysts who are keen to expand their horizons and raise their profiles, with a dedicated team on-hand to provide support and guidance to business analysts who participate in this development opportunity.

Inga Davids, a regular guest contributor to the blog, says

Blogging has given me the platform to share my passion and become a better thinker, by practicing the art of shaping and articulating my thoughts more clearly – an invaluable skill for a business analyst.

Whilst honing one’s writing skills is perhaps the most obvious benefit, the extensive list of pros to consider blogging includes:

  • Developing personally and professionally
  • Giving back to the business analyst community
  • Advancing the business analysis profession
  • Extending your professional network and connection

“People gravitate to people who have an opinion, as ideas and points of view spark thinking that leads to discussion, and we are keen to spark more South African business analysis conversation,” says Joe Newbert.
