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.

What Does Success Look Like? I challenge Business Analysts to view requestors’ requirements as an opportunity to define success. Too often, teams fall into a trap focused on requestors’ prescriptive requirements that are meant to serve as roadmaps for developers and testers. When you limit your view of requirements to this prescripti...

They say the best criteria of Business Analyst’s success are a happy customer (business) and a happy engineering team. But what does it mean? How can we break down happiness and measure it? These are precisely the questions my 8 BAs team and I tried to answer this year. The result was a surprisingly efficient pair of surveys we developed and ...
