Certification Corner

Certifications and higher levels of education do not always mean you are an expert in your field, nor do they always mean you are 100% qualified to do the job, but they are certainly good indicators of ones abilities and accomplishments.  I found that since I obtained my CBAP Certification, I understand Business Analysis in a much clearer capacity.  Now even with Agile being the big push I can see where the "traditional" Business Analyst does in fact fit in the Agile development life cycle.  Testimonial from our very own Bill the BA, CBAP®

The Heartland Chapter of the IIBA is focused on providing quality learning opportunities and support for individuals wishing to get their ECBA, CCBA, CBAP and/or CBATL business analysis designations.  For information about the various certification options and the process to become certified, visit the IIBA Certification Page.
