Leafing through BABOK 3.0. How the business intelligence body of knowledge can help the analyst
For several years we have been following the epic of the translation into Russian of the "Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge" (BABOK 3.0). We discussed on Facebook, analyzed terms and concepts, waited for messages from the head of translation, Alexander Belin, and even performed a review. And then it happened - a red-haired volume of 600 pages in our hands.
In the talk, I will introduce you to the structure of BABOK, the content of the sections and the interdependencies of the parts. I will share recommendations for using the body of knowledge and show two or three examples from my personal practice. I'll tell you why:
a) a novice analyst is not recommended to start learning business analysis with BABOK 3.0;
b) It is helpful for the practising analyst to have the BABOK as a permanent desk guide;
c) It makes sense even for experienced analysts to occasionally look into a book.
