The Practical Business Analysis - Part 1 2019! Real stuff, no faff! course is created for the analysts, by the analysts. I created this to cater to experienced and seasoned professionals, as much as to entry-level and mid-level analysts and managers.

This course aims to fill the much felt gap in the market for an insightful course that is developed for the analysts, by the analysts!

From the Practical Business Analysis - Part1 course, you are sure to get High quality content created and well-presented by well-qualified, experienced and competent professionals. The course is created with top-notch production and technical values and is filled with visually appealing animations and infographics for better engagement. You will get practical and actionable insights and top tips straight from the experience of practising analysts. Though this is largely based on the insights gathered from my experience working as a business analyst, I also covered some important points from the global thought-leaders. These include the IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) and BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT, previously known as British Computer Society).
