EXIN BCS Business Analysis
Organizations are constantly striving to become more efficient and effective. But how do you know what exactly is needed to reach that goal? And what changes then need to be implemented? Are any IT solutions required? That is where the Business Analyst comes in: to investigate the business situation, identify and evaluate the different options to improve business systems, to define requirements and ensure the effective use of information systems in meeting the needs of the business.
The value of business analysis is in the realization of benefits, avoidance of cost, identification of new opportunities, understanding of required capabilities and modeling the organization. Through the effective use of business analysis, any organization can realize these benefits, ultimately improving the way they do business.
EXIN certification scheme addresses different elements of Business Analysis, like Business Change and Commercial Awareness. On a practitioner level (to be offered by EXIN later in 2016) more specific topics such as Requirements Engineering, Business Analysis Practice and Modelling Business Processes are covered.
The new certification scheme has been developed by BCS, The British Computer Society. They promote wider social and economic progress through the advancement of information technology science and practice. With the vision to be a world-class organization for IT, they bring together industry, academics, practitioners and government to share knowledge, promote new thinking, inform the design of new curricula, shape public policy and inform the public.
