Demand is growing for professionals experienced in business analysis.
The number of business analysis jobs is predicted to increase 19 percent by 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. This research indicates a growing need for skilled professionals.
Performing business analysis on projects and programs allows organizations to implement desired changes and achieve strategic objectives. The PMI-PBASM highlights your expertise in business analysis. It spotlights your ability to work effectively with stakeholders to define their business requirements, shape the output of projects and drive successful business outcomes.
Business analysis is a topic of growing importance in project management. The marketplace reflects this importance, as project management practitioners increasingly embrace the business analysis as a technique for uncovering business needs, managing requirements, and creating effective solutions to business problems. The PMI-PBA credential recognizes an individual's expertise in business analysis, and using these tools and techniques to improve the overall success of projects.
In addition, the PMI-PBA credential carries a high level of professional credibility. It requires a combination of business analysis training, experience working on projects, and examination of business analysis principles, practices, tools, and techniques. This global credential also supports individuals in meeting the needs of organizations that rely on business analysis practitioners to play key roles on their project teams.
1. Introduction: Identifying Key Requirements Management Definitions
The field of business analysis is rich with terms, concepts, tools, techniques, and processes. This beginning section sets the foundation of key terms to know in order to prepare you for the five domain areas and forty knowledge and skills areas that are part of the exam.
2. Needs Assessment
The first domain of the exam is where people begin their requirements process and the activities that lead to project success. Emphasis is placed on the processes used to define the business problem or opportunity. The Needs Assessment Domain encompasses 18 percent of the exam. In this section we review how to effectively perform these tasks.
In the Planning Domain your focus will shift to putting the proper requirements management activities in order. The person performing business analysis work will determine which tools, techniques, policies, or procedures are necessary to prepare the requirements management plan.
Analysis of the requirements involves eliciting requirements from stakeholders and making sense of what has been revealed. This domain includes performing the following requirements activities: eliciting, analyzing, decomposing, accepting, approving, specifying, and validating.
5. Traceability and Monitoring
Identifying the status of requirements throughout the lifecycle of the project and communicating critical information related to requirements is an important factor for project success. This domain is concerned about managing, examining, and sharing requirements information with the project stakeholders.
The final domain topic examines if the delivered solution achieves the business need and satisfies the requirements. These activities could include solution testing, gaps analysis, and final sign-off.
*Project experience can include your business analysis experience. A current PMP® or PgMP® will satisfy this requirement but is not required for the PMI-PBA.

How is Business Analysis related to project management?
Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. Requirements are an inherent aspect of Project Management (and Program Management) and Business Analysis is an important function that identifies, analyzes, and manages those requirements in order to ensure the goal of the project is achieved.
Do I need to be a designated business analyst to apply for PMI-PBA certification?
No, Business analyst designation is not a mandate for PMI-PBA Certification. PMI recognizes if you are a part of a business analysis irrespective of your designation. You may be a system engineer or a project manager but if your work activities are as per the content outline of the PMI-PBA this then makes you eligible for this certificate
What are the eligibility criteria?
The eligibility criterion of PMI-PBA is grouped under two types:
Experience- If you have a bachelor's degree or a global equivalent, then you need to have an experience of 3 years in business analysis. This means you are required to have 4500 hours of experience in 3 years duration doing activities associated with the business analysis.
How many PDUs required?
What is the duration of the PMI-PBA Exam?
200 questions. Four hour duration.
How do individuals benefit from obtaining the PMI-PBA credential?
The PMI-PBA credential validates and demonstrates a practitioner's knowledge and experience in working with stakeholders to define their business requirements—a critical skill needed to shape the output of projects and drive successful business outcomes. It also differentiates practitioners from their non-certified peers—and because it is transferrable across methodologies, industries and geographies, it helps make them more marketable.
How does an organization benefit from having PMI-PBA credential holders?
The PMI-PBA credential provides organizations with a measurement by which they can evaluate individuals who perform Business Analysis and manage requirements for projects. It also potentially benefits the organizational bottom line. For example, the more effective Requirements Management practices are, the more likely projects will be on time and on budget and deliver their outcome.
