Are you often wondering whether you have the right business analysts in your team to match the demand of your business partners? Do you have an idea of what their skills are, and what their areas of developments are? Our accurate and independent BA Assessment can help you with these challenges.
A 3-hour hand-written assessment, based on the IIBA Competency Model, which covers the following areas:
This assessment is not a psychometric or personality profile test, but a qualitative tool that seeks to gain insights into the business analysis skills of the person being assessed. It is scenario based, and focuses on the application of knowledge, rather than the regurgitating of facts. The assessment is individually marked by our subject matter expert in the business analysis field, with a comprehensive report issued for your business analyst who has undertaken it, and includes recommendations on what intervention steps are required. A personalized intervention plan is also offered as an optional extra.
Although it can be taken, under supervised conditions, at DVT’s Melrose or Centurion offices, we do also offer the flexibility to administer the assessment at our clients’ sites (if necessary).
Both intermediate and senior business analysts are a suitable audience to take this assessment. Unfortunately, junior business analysts will not be able to take the assessment.
So you want to cross over to the land of analysis? A land of ‘schizophrenic’ people who need to possess multiple skills and make meaning out of ambiguity. You'll need to break down complex problems into bite-size chunks that can be easily understood. You'll also need to manage different stakeholders and break down knowledge barriers formed by these stakeholders. (Most having been in their organisations for decades) Finally, you'll need to develop a thick skin to stand in the firing line.
