Post The ISEB Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis
by: Simon Buehring

The ISEB Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis is the international standard training-course and qualification for aspiring business managers, analysts and consultants. It is also a key specialist module for the ISEB Business Analysis Diploma (an ISEB Higher qualification), which is an increasingly desirable addition to the CV of any professional business analyst.

There are three core Business Analysis modules and five specialist modules. Students must gain certificates in each of the three core modules and one of the specialist modules before registering for the oral exam. All Business Analysis modules are independent ISEB Practitioner qualifications, apart from the ISEB Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis.

The three core ISEB Business Analysis Diploma modules are:

• Business Analysis Essentials (3 day training-course)

- Developing a business strategy, learning business analysis techniques and applying these techniques to a business scenario.

• Organisational Context (3 day training-course)

- The legal basis, management and structure of organisations, legislation relevant to IS professionals, and business finance.

• Requirements Engineering (4 day training-course)

- Eliciting, analysing, documenting, validating and managing user requirements.

The five specialist ISEB Business Analysis modules are:

• Benefits Management and Business Acceptance (3 day training-course)

- Identifying, categorising and delivering expected benefits; designing and implementing an acceptance testing process.

• Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis (3 day training-course)

- Business analysis principles and techniques, including a basic introduction to subject areas covered by other BSD modules.

• Modelling Business Processes (2 day training-course)

- Investigating, modelling, analysing and improving business processes.

• Systems Development Essentials (3 day training-course)

- Fundamental systems development methodology and organisation, from systems investigation to systems review.

• Systems Modelling Techniques (3 day training-course)

- Construction and implementation of modelling systems from three key perspectives (structured, object-oriented and agile).

Achieving the ISEB Business Analysis Diploma is recommended for any professional who wishes to pursue a high-level career in business management. However, the ISEB Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis is essential for people involved at any level in business and business analysis, particularly within the IT industry.
