More organizations are recognizing the value of improving the requirements process through business analysis. Both IIBA and PMI offer business analysis certifications.
The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) has two certifications: 1) Certification of Competency in Business AnalysisTM(CCBA®) Designation and 2) Certified Business Analysis ProfessionalTM (CBAP®) Designation.
The Project Management Institute (PMI) has added the PMI-Professional in Business Analysis (PBA) Designation to its family of certifications. This certification prepares project managers to better identify, evaluate, and management project requirements.
