Re: 8 Ways to Boost Your Career in '08 

Hi Adrian,

I am hoping that I can get some guidance in getting back into IT - more specifically into a BA role. I was a BA 5 years ago. I am now trying to get back into IT. More specifically, I would like to get into a role within a healthcare IT org. What would you recommend to someone like me that has been out of the industry for so long do?

Should I be looking at getting re-trained and if so on what? should I take a certification program specifically for a healthcare environment and if so, which would you recommend? Finally, does MA allow or sell a learning version of your sw to learn?

Regards,

Re: 8 Ways to Boost Your Career in '08 

If you are looking to get back into the BA role, I would recommend taking some courses geared towards business analysts.  There are many vendors which offer such  business analysis training.

As far as the industry goes - I think that if you have an interest in the healthcare industry then the best way would be to try to get a job in that industry.  My advice to you would be to focus on your BA skills first since if you got that down you should have no problem getting a job in any industry.  The best way to learn a specific vertical industry is to work in that domain.

Hope this helps!

- Adrian

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
