Business Analysis skills are increasingly in demand as organisations grapple with the need to ensure better return on project investment.
Business analysts map out obstacles, analyse needs, manage project teams and implement changes that provide a critical role in determining project failure or success. They work as a translator or liaison between stakeholders to help them better understand the organisation’s structure, policies, and operations.
Traditionally, business analysts sat in the IT department – but their skills are now in demand across the board as organisations grapple with the need to ensure better return on project investment.
