Business Analysis in Germany
Welcome to the IIBA Germany Chapter
We are a professional association of business analysts (see https://germany.iiba.org/about-iiba).
Business analysts are the trailblazers and guides to digital transformation.
The process and methodology of business analysis revolves around the optimization of organizations and their ecosystem.
Business analysts (BA) identify optimization potentials in processes, structures and the digitization of them. BA support the individual departments by using their process and methodological know-how when trying to identify capabilities and weaknesses, brainstorming, elaboration, conception and implementation. They assess the subsequent use of improvements with the underlying digital solutions and drive the gap analysis. They often work at the interface between the departments to the IT and the service providers or suppliers. As part of an ongoing project, the BA works together with the project management, which is responsible for the design and development of the solution. The BAs cover the entire life cycle of the organization with their structures and work processes, analyze the result achieved before and after the projects and are constantly on the lookout for further potential for improvement.
The BA therefore embody the competencies needed for digital transformation in the company.
The IIBA provides know-how in the form of literature, templates such as toolboxes and checklists or training material. Here we cover topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Business Process Improvement, Data Analytics, Lean Management, Machine Learning, Strategic Portfolio Management, Process Mining, Requirements Engineering or Stakeholder Management.
In addition to building up the common, internationally compiled knowledge base on these topics, the IBAA networks its members through the national association or chapter and supports personal development in this large community with currently 30,000 members.
The IIBA supports you for becoming a certified business analyst and carries out certifications to become an internationally recognized BA, like CCBA or CBAP. Be assured, that's an important step on your career path.
If you want to become a business analyst or are already working as a BA, you are welcome to join our community! Our premise is lifelong learning, which is why we regularly discuss new and exciting topics related to the BA or exchange experiences from everyday working life in business.
If you want to be certified as a BA and are looking for a network of like-minded people - then you have come to the right place and are always welcome. Before you decide to become a member, you are welcome to participate in our regular BA rounds - a kind of monthly regulars' table. You can find the dates on LinkedIn and here on our website Germany Chapter.
