PMI-PBA Credential

PMI launches a Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA) credential

Business analysis is a growing area in project management The number of business analysis jobs is predicted to increase 22 percent by 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics. This research indicates a growing need for professionals skilled in effective requirements management.

The Project Management Institute ({MI) will be launching a PMI-PBA credential which certifies practitioner’s ability to effectively work with stakeholders to define their business requirements, shape the output of projects and drive successful business outcomes.

Anyone focused on evaluating and analysing business problems or managing requirements within a project or program should obtain this credential.

PMI has announced a significant expansion to their offerings in requirements management. PMI has long been an authority on requirements management and their 2013 Pulse of the Profession® research shows that poor requirements management continues to be a major cause of project failure. Requirements management is a critical competency for projects and programs—regardless of who performs it. By breaking down the barriers between roles and through working together, the PMI believes success can be achieved in both common and complex projects.

PMI launched a new Requirements Management Knowledge Centre of Excellence (CoE) website to serve as a knowledge hub where practitioners and organizations can get all the resources they need to improve their requirements management capabilities and maturity.

In conjunction with this, launched a Requirements Management Practice Area. On this website, practitioners will find answers to basic questions, content from subject matter experts, as well as tools and templates.

The PMI-PBA certification validates and demonstrates a practitioner’s knowledge and experience in defining business requirements—a critical skill needed to shape the output of projects and drive successful business outcomes.

PMI plans to publish a practice guide on the topic of Business Analysis in 2014. It will link good requirements management practices from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) to the practice of business analysis within organizations.

PMI is also in the process of developing a full consensus, common standard on the topic of requirements management, which is slated for launch in 2015. PMI is collaborating with project managers; value, software and systems engineers; and business and agile analysts to make sure it includes the common components of requirements across these disciplines.

All of these elements will help provide practitioners who work with requirements, the tools and knowledge they need to achieve project success
