Why a business analysis qualification is valuable
The value of business analysis
Business analysis, provided by skilled practitioners, delivers great value to an organisation.
A bridge between the world of the organisation's professional staff and a professional IT service, business analysts can help to ensure that the needs of the organisation are translated into clear statements of need that the IT can deliver.
The decades in which this link has not worked effectively or efficiently has cost organisations enormous sums of money as well as lost opportunities. The legacy of that has been the delivery of computer systems that do not satisfy the organisation's needs and are difficult to adapt to changing demands.
The demand for business analysts
Not surprisingly, great business analysts are in demand, but there is great competition for these jobs.
Obviously, each person has to succeed in a job interview, but a qualification will:
- help you get invited for an interview
- help you to answer the questions
Once in the job, the knowledge gained from the course will help to give you confidence in your recommendations, actions and decisions.

Each lesson features a video overview, a comprehensive workbook, and a multi-choice online quiz with downloadable answers.
