The role of business analysis

The role of the Business Analyst is an essential role to insure projects deliver business value. A project being on time and on budget, does not insure the delivery of business value.  It is not uncommon to hear the expression “The project was a technical success but, a business failure.”   In some organizations, the role of Business Analyst is combined with the role of Project Manager.  In other companies, these roles are completely separated.  In either case, the skills and competencies of  Business Analysis are applicable and necessary. There are a number of opportunities offered by the TLC in the coming months to learn more about the importance of the Business Analyst role, as well as training classes that will enhance your Business Analyst skills.  Learn about our Business Analysis Certificate.
