about BA-Toolkit

Why the BA Toolkit?

During the execution of Business Analysis tasks, business analysts may use various knowledge, skills, terminology, and attitudes. Using the BABOK as a guide, many business analysts find it not easy to read and challenging to apply in real-life scenarios.

If you agree with this and want access to a visual guide with straightforward explanations, tips and tricks, videos, examples, exercises, templates, etc., you are in the right place. The platform is currently available in both English and French.

See an example of a technical sheet.

But that's not all.

You can also ask questions, share your experiences and ideas with other business analysts via the forum and other channels. The BA Toolkit is developed by experienced business analysts who felt the need for a practical guide in their daily BA life. It is constantly improved with new information and techniques (some of which are not even found in the BABOK). After all, Business Analysis is continually evolving!

With the BA Toolkit, the BABOK becomes crystal clear!

It's here to make your life easier. Let's create it together. We are always open to new ideas and would love to hear yours!

The Business Analyst Role

According to BABOK, Business Analysis is the practice of enabling change in an organizational context by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value to stakeholders.

Business Analysis involves a deep understanding of an organization's structure, policies, and operations and recommending solutions to achieve its objectives.

What is a Business Analyst, and what is their role?

According to BABOK, a BA is a person who performs business analysis, regardless of their job title or organizational role. Here are some examples: system analyst, requirements analyst, process analyst, product analyst, product owner.

But, in the end, someone who performs the tasks described in the BABOK, including project managers, software developers, testers, etc., also performs business analysis.

Thanks to the company's innovation research and the constant evolution of technological trends, the BA profession is increasingly in demand in the job market. A business analyst is fundamental for product and process innovation and advancing outcomes.
