Business Analyst Career Transition

Thinking of transitioning to a Business Analyst Career or adding some of the Business Analyst competencies to your existing career?

Here are some of the activities I am actively doing or considering:

  1. Reading a book on the subject. I found “How to Start a Business Analyst Career” by Laura Brandenburg, CBAP.
  2. Take some online courses. I found Coursera courses for Business Analytics Specialization and Big Data Specialization.
  3. Look at online job board posts focusing on the tasks and skills to identify gaps. Various job titles should be searched such as:
    1. Business Analyst
    2. Business Process Analyst
    3. System Analyst
    4. IT Business Consultant
  4. Work on filling the gaps.
  5. Read about Best Practices for the role.
  6. Join a networking group and network with others already in that role.
