ECBA | CCBA | CBAP Study Group: January 2023 Session
[VIRTUAL] ECBA™ / CCBA® / CBAP® STUDY GROUP – January 2023 SESSION: Chapter 6
Whether you're thinking of formalizing your years of BA experience with a CCBA® or CBAP® certification, or you're looking to change careers and are considering the ECBA™ certificate, there is no better way to begin or keep your studies on track than with our virtual study group.
Purpose of the Study Group
The purpose of monthly study group sessions is to provide an opportunity for business analysts considering or preparing to write the ECBA™, CCBA®, or CBAP® exam to talk with other like-minded individuals to review and discuss content in the BABOK®. Each month we focus on a single chapter (or two) of the BABOK®, sharing perspectives on the content and answering questions amongst the group. Time is dedicated to reviewing materials you will need to know for the exam. A quiz is offered at the end of the session to reinforce and assess the material covered. The session is facilitated by a CBAP-certified business analyst.
Overview of the Session
Much of a business analyst’s work begins with clearly defining the business needs of our stakeholders. Failing to perform Strategy Analysis successfully—or at all—introduces a risk that we may fail to address our stakeholders’ real business needs and ultimately fail to deliver value to our stakeholders.
In the January 2023 session, we will focus on the Strategy Analysis knowledge area, the sixth chapter of the BABOK®.
The Strategy Analysis knowledge area describes the business analysis work that must be performed to collaborate with stakeholders in order to identify a need of strategic or tactical importance (the business need), enable the enterprise to address that need, and align the resulting strategy for the change with higher- and lower-level strategies.
