Re: IT professional towards Business Analysis 


I am in a similar position having worked as an analyst programmer for some years I was promoted to the role of business analyst and then senior business analyst.  I chair the project workshops/status meetings and work with the business to define processes, etc however I have no formal qualifications. 

I have not been asked to follow any methodology and the nature of the role is extremely 'free-form'.  All my knowledge has been gleaned whilst on the job and I am keen to try and formalise this experience.

My fear is that if I apply for a BA role elsewhere I will be required to have certifications etc and have none and have not used any recognised methods, so will naturally be overlooked.

Can anybody provide a 'game plan' for becoming a fully qualified Business Analyst?  What qualifications should I be trying to get - which are the most recognised?  Should I be trying to get industry recognised qualifications or are there alternatives courses that provide a better grounding and use better methodologies? 

Any advise would be appreciated.
