    BABOK® v3 Virtual Study Group 

    Are you interested in ECBA, CCBA® or CBAP® certification, or just would like to learn more about the content of A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) version 3?  Then this business analysis training opportunity is for you!       

    This summer, Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will once again host a virtual BABOK® v3 Study Group for those individuals interested in IIBA® core certification or learning the BABOK Guide to better their career.

    Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will run the study group for 14 study sessions on Tuesday evenings through the summer.  Students should be prepared to spend 2 to 3 hours studying each week, plus the 2.5 hours study session on Tuesday evening. This study group will provide practice tests opportunity for students.  ECBA practice tests are at the competency level for new business analysts; while the CCBA/CBAP practice tests are at a competency level for more seasoned business analysts. We ask students to begin studying early so it is a good idea to be registered at least one week prior to the first session. Students will be provided with course material, including an ECBA or CBAP Study Guide. 

    This is an instructor-led course. It will be instructed by Director of Certification Eric Neill, PMP, CSCP, CLTD; Vice President of Professional Development Aaron Whittenberger, CBAP, CSPO, AAC and President, Kathy Leigh, CBAP, and other CBAP instructors from the Chapter.

    Please note that this study group is open to everyone internationally. Please understand that this course is taught in American English.  Study sessions are at 6:00 p.m. EDT. If you are not in the Eastern time zone of North America, you will need to translate this time to your time zone.

    See what past students of this Study Group are saying about it:


    "This study group made learning about the extremely complicated BABOK easier and definitely helped me be a better Business Analyst for my company. I was able to apply why I learned immediately."

    -- Noreen Gray

    "The passion and expertise of the facilitators in the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter inspired me to further pursue my professional goal to become ECBA certified. The concepts began to "stick" week 4 and suddenly all of the techniques and principles made sense."

    -- Debbie Stair

    "This study group was a perfect way to get introduced to the vast amount of material in the BABOK from those who clearly are passionate and knowledgeable in the BA domain. It was very helpful to have someone review each chapter weekly and assist with strategies on how to absorb so much information. It was a valuable investment and has given me the confidence that I can continue to study on my own now."

    -- Sharon Brosious

    "well organized and interactive. practice session was the best part" 

    "This is one of the best groups taking on review of the BABOK for exam taking, or for general business analysis knowledge refreshing, that I have found!"

    "Study group was a great experience. All participants shared their experience making it interesting and an amazing learning experience."

     

    "This study group forced me to read the BABOK in a timely manner, which I know I would have struggled with on my own. It didn't allow me to procrastinate or stop and start - it kept me on a good pace to absorb all of the information without taking too long."

     

    "The Bluegrass Chapter BABOK study group was an extremely valuable tool for me in successfully earning my CBAP."

    Topic: Making Magic with Blended Teams

    Important Notice: Upon recommendations of the CDC and state health officials, we have decided to make this meeting completely remote. You may now register on our online meeting platform using the 'Register Now' button below.

    Developing software is a risky endeavor full of unknowns. Is the product viable? Is it desirable? Is it feasible? How can we answer these questions without taking months or years to get something shipped? Enter the Balanced Team and the magic of interdisciplinary work. While individuals can do great work alone, magic happens when roles work together to break through constraints–or innovate around them. Becki Hyde will share stories of how Balanced Teams deliver human-centered software in a world of ambiguity. From her experience as a practitioner and consultant, she’ll provide insights into how Balanced Teams work in practice, and the benefits of intentionally working at the intersection of roles.

    Topic: 10 Tips for Enterprise Agility

    Important Notice: Upon recommendations of the CDC and state health officials, we have decided to make this meeting completely remote. You may now register on our online meeting platform using the 'Register Now' button below.

    The days of thinking that transformation is isolated to the IT department are over. One of the biggest challenges of a global organization is not only adapting to market demands but doing so in a way that advances new business lines, encourages customer-oriented collaboration, and promotes continuous improvement. This new way of working must be based on promoting new cultural changes, rethinking management practices, transforming processes organization-wide, and optimizing all departments by focusing on the core business.

    As a result, many organizations are adopting agile principles and practices to effectively respond to today’s volatile business environment and better meet customer needs. But adopting agile is not the same as achieving business agility.

    Join me for a webinar to understand:

    • What is Agile (beyond the buzzwords)?
    • How the scope of Agile has gone beyond IT and translates to the entire enterprise
    • What practices enable enterprise agility
    • Applying analysis at all levels of the enterprise
    • Actionable items you can implement to enhance agility




      Target Audience:

      • Project Business Analysts
      • Enterprise Business Analysts
      • Business Systems Analysts
      • Requirements Engineers

      Presented by: Ali Cox, General Manager and Lead Instructor and Consultant

      Alison (Ali) Cox has over 30 years of experience in business analysis, agile, project methodology development and training, systems development (mainframe, client-server, and web), and telecommunications management. She began her career in the financial services area, and then moved into systems development for accounting systems. Ali has lived through IT initiatives from waterfall to implementing agile in her own small business, then helping other companies do the same through training and mentoring. She believes that having the small business mentality (everyone has to pitch in on everything) is the right kind of mindset for all organizations, no matter the size.

      As Lead Expert in Business Analysis + Agile and General Manager for Netmind, Ali provides training and mentoring for businesses ranging in size from a single team to Fortune 500 companies worldwide. She also speaks Spanish fluently!

        Topic: Agile for the Business Analyst

        Traditional system-development methodologies are rapidly being replaced by more iterative or agile approaches. More and more organizations are realizing the benefits of faster product deployment at a lower cost, with less rework due to missed requirements. Effective business analysis is key to developing those requirements and keeping projects on track. Come along as Terrell explores the contributions of good requirements development in an Agile environment and equips business analysts with the critical thinking, analytical skills, and necessary people skills they need to add value to every Agile project.
