i dont think, its just about the certification.

- your work experience matter alot.
- this used to be a gradual process.
- offcourse your academic qualification. postgraduate studies.
- and the main thing is your interest and passion. and its there

technical certifications could help you in this, but not alone. some certifications might be helpful to you.

- SCEA
- UML
- could think of more this time.

thanks.

Our BA team (2) is heavily into requirements gathering. That would emphasize people skills to interview and observe users, great clarity, organization and thoroughness in written and verbal communication, obsessive attention to detail, creativity in restating requirements as prototype ideas, business knowlege to work backwards from detailed procedures to business purpose. (Wow, they must be good!) UML is a small part of the job. But that's only my shop. Let's hear from others.

hi,

as per my thoughts, I think a BA may have the knowledge of UML it will be definately helpful but not for modeling the system but to understand what System analyst has made... coz i feel the BA is the guy who sits other side of the discussion table based on whos inputs System analyst will build a domain diagram

its me again... waiting for others

Some [basic] business theories, heres a list to get started:

1) Anything written by Adam Smith.
2) Strategic management; P.E.S.T., S.W.O.T., Porter's Five Forces:Strategic management

Mind you I've never been able to get into this type of work [Business Analysis]. It does help however, to know the stuff your senior managment have been taught.

BAs are often the bridge between business & technical teams. Our BAs play "surrogate customers" ... they take the customer role in conversations with the techies. If your technical folk use UML to restate their understanding of the requirements it will be vital for the BA to know how to converse about UML artifacts. That just doesn't happen so much with us.
