Re: Need Suggestions 

 Hello Pranav, 

Try transitioning. Assuming that you have worked as a PM, look for jobs that require a PM and BA role.

I am not aware of domain specific BA certification. But some universities do provide BA certifications - you will have to search one in your region. A certification may also help you to get a BA role, but I am assuming that such jobs will be at entry/mid level.

UC Berkeley has one:


All the best !

Re: Need Suggestions 

The essence of value in a business context centers around Return on Investment (ROI). ROI is the weight of the business value or benefits, typically captured as increases in revenue or decreases in cost, over the cost of implementation the change. The variables of ROI can be picked apart to no end. When it comes to cost, many organizations focus on technology costs and forego the other business-related costs, such as stakeholder involvement, in determining ROI. In a more mature organization they may look at the total cost of ownership which takes into account the cost of owning the solution throughout its entire product lifecyle.

If we look at the ROI formula, there are really only two components that a BA can impact.
