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