ECBA™ / CCBA® / CBAP® Study Group - November 2018 Session

Tuesday, November 27, 2018 -
5:45pm to 7:30pm
 Add to Calendar


Strolling through a field, picking strawberries on a sunny day—is this what requirements gathering is like? Business analysts collect information through analysis of documents, facilitating workshops and holding conversations with stakeholders. But what if the BA doesn’t ask the questions needed to clarify the true problem to be solved? Or doesn't conduct sufficient analysis to identify conflicting requirements? Or doesn't cross-check and evaluate requirements to identify gaps?

Purpose of the Study Group

Facilitated by a CBAP-certified business analyst, the monthly study group sessions provide an opportunity for business analysts considering or preparing to write the ECBA™, CCBA ® or CBAP ® exam to meet with other like-minded individuals to review content in the BABOK ® v3.

Each month, we will focus on a single chapter of the BABOK ® v3, sharing perspectives on the content and answering questions among the group. A “technique spotlight” studies a select group of techniques relevant to the knowledge area. A quiz is offered at the end of each session to reinforce and assess the material covered.

Overview of the Session

In the November 2018 session, we will focus on the Elicitation and Collaboration knowledge area, the fourth chapter of the BABOK ® v3.

The Elicitation and Collaboration knowledge area consists of tasks performed to communicate expectations of stakeholders, conduct elicitation activities, confirm the outcomes of elicitation activities, understand stakeholder needs, provide stakeholders with key information, and engage stakeholders throughout the business analysis process.
