How do I know whether I have enough BA working experience to qualify CCBA / CBAP eligibility criteria? To get an answer to the question requires careful examination of profile in terms of years of experience, projects, roles and tasks carried out. As per BABOK, Business Analyst is any person who performs business analysis activities, no matter what their job title or organization role may be. Business analysis practitioners include not only people with the job title of business analyst, but may also include business system analysts, system analysts, requirements engineers, process analysts, functional analysts, product managers, product owners, enterprise analysis, business architects, management consultants, or any other person who performs the tasks described in the BABOK guide including those who also perform related disciplines such as project management, software development, quality assurance. You may be into hybrid role, performing the tasks of project management as well as business analysis OR you may be focused on requirement aspects at a project level OR you may be a business analyst performing tasks at the enterprise level. You should be able to derive BA%, based on what all different tasks performed during the project. Let's calculate BA hours per year. For one year, consider 11 months deducting one month towards holidays, leaves. Total working hours per years comes to 1452 Hours, considering 22 working days per month, 6 hours per day. Calculate BA hours, depending on the role and project tasks. Please note 12 Months, 30 Days and 8 Hours is not practical / realistic figure for calculation. For example: If you are a BA in a hybrid role, then 60% to 70% on BA and 30% to 40% on Project Management tasks. If you are a BA working along with Project Manager, then 80% to 90%. of total working hours per year. Sample Profile: 10 years' experience eligible for CBAP. Sr. Project Manager / Sr. Business Analyst - Since last two year - 2300 BA Hours (80%) Project Manager / Team Lead - 4 years - 3500 BA Hours. (60%) Sr. Software Developer - 2 years - 1200 Hours (40%) Software Developer - 2 Years - 900 Hours (30%) The above illustration is to provide guidance, so that you can self-evaluate, whether you have enough BA working experience to qualify CCBA / CBAP eligibility criteria or not. To calculate whether you have minimum hours of experience in the knowledge area, requires further drill down to BA task level. Final approval from IIBA depends on project description, tasks selected while filling up online application.
