How to Start with BA career 


I am working as an application support engineer and my IT experience has only been in IT service & operations till now.

I am thinking of making a career change and move to business analysis, but see there are quite a few chalenges as I am not from a development / design background. Most of the courses and study material requires a basic knowlegde of the best practices (like SDLC, Agile etc.) to be efficient in BA.

I understand this would be a hard nut to crack, but could anyone help me understand how I need to proceed? What fundamentals I need to tackle and understand first?

I have already started with a few Self Study books on requirement analysis etc. but would need a little help in how I could plan this out.

Many thanks.
