Business Analyst Skills, Role & Requirements Assessment

Business Analysis Skills & Requirements Assessment

What is your proficiency level as a business analyst? Do you have any knowledge gaps? Can you successfully fill your role as a business analyst? Without this information, you don’t know where you stand or what needs improvement.

Systemation offers individual and organizational assessments prior to the start of any training program to establish a baseline and identify both strengths and needs-attention areas.

Additionally, Systemation administers post-training assessments to measure improvement, benchmark a group against peers, or design a customized follow-up training program.

Our Business Analysis assessments are finely tuned to provide accurate and insightful diagnostics, at the level of detail you need to achieve project and business success by honing your business analysis skills.

 

Great Business Analysts Have These Competencies...

 

Business Analysis Knowledge Assessment

Utilizing International Institute of Business Analysis’ (IIBA) A Guide to the IIBA Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide) as a reference, we crafted 98 multiple-choice questions targeting 32 competencies to evaluate a person’s business analysis know-how.

You receive a detailed report, measuring your mastery of IIBA’s seven knowledge areas. From the results, Systemation determines the specific areas where you and your organization can benefit most from performance improvement and better fulfill your business analyst requirements.

 

Business Analysis Skill Assessment

Using a 360-degree evaluation format that gathers perspectives from the business analyst, supervisor, team members, and clients, this business analysis assessment evaluates your ability to perform the business analysis skills essential for your projects to thrive.

When utilized in tandem with the Business Analysis Knowledge Assessment, this tool can also help determine the root cause of why a business analyst is not practicing a particular skill effectively in their specific business analyst role. Is there a need for training or is there an organization barrier?

Once we collect the 360-degree input, we generate a report that compares your self-assessment with others’ views of your skill level. We provide you with a skill-level profile organized by IIBA’s seven knowledge areas, and we compare these business analysis assessment profiles with a group of peers, either at your company or within the broader business analysis community.

 

Organizational Business Analysis Capability Assessment

After your assessment of your business analysis skills, we begin by evaluating your organization’s business analysts with the Business Analysis Knowledge and Skill Assessments.

Next, we conduct in-depth interviews with a variety of stakeholders, including at least one member of executive management, a few mid-level managers, and several individual business analysts. We even speak with your clients to see how you are satisfying your business analyst requirements.

We carefully review multiple samples of business analysis documentation, including requirements, process flows, current and future state capabilities, traceability matrixes, and data models. And we evaluate the tools business analysts use for capturing requirements and other business analysis activities.

With these assessments completed and your business analysis skills understood, we combine all this information to create a comprehensive picture of your organization’s business analysis environment, strengths, and weaknesses. We highlight knowledge gaps, organizational barriers to project success, and more in an easily digestible but comprehensive briefing format. Better fulfill your business analyst role with Systemation!
