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, you are in the right place. The platform is currently available in both French and soon in English


But that's not all.

The BA ToolKit was designed by experienced business analysts who felt the need for a pragmatic manual for their profession. It benefits from regular updates, integrating new methods, some of which are not present in BABOK.

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.

What is IIBA?

  • Defining the body of knowledge in business analysis (BABOK),
  • Providing a knowledge-sharing forum and contributing to the business analyst profession,
