Building Business Analyst qualification assessment system


Assessment of Business Analyst qualification level is a challenging task due to many reasons. First of all, expectations from a BA may vary in different industries, companies, projects and project phases. Also, any assessment run by a human is subjective: different experts may provide different results for the same person. And this can lead to misunderstanding and conflicts. Lastly, the assessment approach should be flexible enough to improve over time and meet changing demands.

In our talk, we'd like to share our successful experience of building Business Analyst assessment procedure at DataArt.

In this presentation I will tell about two high-level approaches to specifying changes in requirements, their strengths, weaknesses and a way to combine them.
