Re: Ask Away 

To start, you should take a look at the Getting Started forum as it has a number of relevant threads related to beginning a career as a business analyst.

Also, check out the articles on the Business Analyst Career and on Getting Started as a Business Analyst.

The general advice that I have is for you to pick an Industry in which you have an interest in and start there.  I will assume that you have an interest in HR and Recruiting.  Given you current work experience and your MBA in HR, you should consider looking for a Business Analyst position in the HR field.  You should take a course in business analysis so that you can gain an understanding of what a BA does.

I'm sure there are many companies in India which offer such training.  Spectramind is one that I'm aware of.

Hope this help!

Re: Ask Away 

Hi Patrick,

Tis is Raga, I need some help in getting in BA career. I am a Btech mechanical engineer with 2 years experience in QA and testing, recently achieved PMIs CAPM certification, with a hope to get into PMO. But somehow didn't work. Just now I am done with my trainning in Business Analysis and got familiar with the techniques such as JAR/JAD/Interview techniques for requirement gathering, preparing BRD, UML diagramming techniques using tools like IBM Rational Rose, Enterprise Architecture, Visio and also got familiar with UAT concepts like how to coordinate UAT. What should be my next step. I am good at Project management concepts, good at communicating with various cross functional stakeholders, good at technology front..but lacks the experience in this particular field...Please give me tips on landing on my Dream Job.

Thanks & Regards,

Raga

Re: Ask Away 

Hi Raga,

How come did PMO not work out for you?

Also - what type of Business Analysis training did you do?

Re: Ask Away 

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for responding to my query. I greatly appreciate your help. As all my experience and education is done in India, I dont have much IT related experience here in USA. Although I am a Greencard Holder and did my CAPM,I dont know anybody or any consultancy comapny that would help me marketing for PMO positions. Known friends suggested BA and so instead of waiting on, I went ahead and joined IT Business Analysis trainning, from one of the local trainning consultancy comapany. I was trained in what sort of tools and techniques you would use for requirement gathering and management, UML modeling design techniques that would aid in preparing Funcitional Design spec, like identifying usecases, preparing use case narratives, preparing use case diagrams, activity diagrams, sequence diagrams, wireframes using tools like IBM Rational Rose, Rational Requisite Pro, Enterprise Architecture, Visio. Now I am looking forward to proceed to next step which I am not sure in what I should be doing to land on Jr.BA or related role. I need help in going ahead from here.

Thanks & Regards,

Raga.

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 ...
