Availability of PDUs for PMI-PBA Holders 
As a recently certified PMI-PBA (without a PMP), I find  that most relevant webinars and presentations are still limiting themselves to awarding PDUs for only project and program management certifications.  This includes presentations concerning stakeholder analysis, requirements management, elicitation, and evaluation of solutions.  While a small handful do acknowledge and credit PMI-PBA holders, most do not.  

 

I am not an IIBA credential holder, but I do tend to wonder if this same issue exists from a CDU perspective for that audience.  I also tend to wonder if presentations targeted to IIBA credential holders, which do award CDUs, could be applicable for PMI-PBA holders as well and if so whether that actually happens.  The PMI-PBA may be too new for that practice to be widely adopted as of yet.

I simply ask that continuing education presenters to begin considering whether the topics that they present can in any way be tied to the knowledge areas and practices for business analysis in general - preferably for both IIBA and PMI-PBA credential holders.  It can only help from a project management perspective to ensure that business analysis configures prominently in its literature and its professional development.  We BAs are out there, and we are looking to develop, and we are looking to gain credit for that development - and if you build it, we will come.

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
