Webinar Overview:

The business analyst role continues to be recognized as one of the most critical positions on programs and projects. In 2014, PMI research discovered that 47% of unsuccessful projects failed to meet objectives as a result of poor requirements management and that only 1 in 5 organizations reported high maturity in requirements management practices [1].

The need to address these failures in poorly performing programs and projects is driving the demand for highly skilled business analysts across industries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the business analysis profession will experience a 19% faster than average increase in growth or the addition of 133,000 new jobs between the years 2012 – 2022.

With the demand for qualified practitioners so high, organizations need assistance in filling these critical roles. Obtaining a PMI-PBA® certification will identify those experienced business analysts in the profession who can help organizations address these requirements related challenges.
