Availability of PDUs for PMI-PBA Holders 
As a recently certified PMI-PBA (without a PMP), I find  that most relevant webinars and presentations are still limiting themselves to awarding PDUs for only project and program management certifications.  This includes presentations concerning stakeholder analysis, requirements management, elicitation, and evaluation of solutions.  While a small handful do acknowledge and credit PMI-PBA holders, most do not.  


I am not an IIBA credential holder, but I do tend to wonder if this same issue exists from a CDU perspective for that audience.  I also tend to wonder if presentations targeted to IIBA credential holders, which do award CDUs, could be applicable for PMI-PBA holders as well and if so whether that actually happens.  The PMI-PBA may be too new for that practice to be widely adopted as of yet.

I simply ask that continuing education presenters to begin considering whether the topics that they present can in any way be tied to the knowledge areas and practices for business analysis in general - preferably for both IIBA and PMI-PBA credential holders.  It can only help from a project management perspective to ensure that business analysis configures prominently in its literature and its professional development.  We BAs are out there, and we are looking to develop, and we are looking to gain credit for that development - and if you build it, we will come.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
