BABOK® V3 Awareness Course

Training: Image of a delegate writing on paperThe BABOK® v3 Awareness Course provides a ‘whistle-stop tour’ of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK®) Guide v 3.    The course is conducted in an interactive environment where practitioners can explore the key concepts and knowledge areas in BABOK® and relate these to their own working environment. Attendees will reinforce, crystallise and build on their existing knowledge, whilst also identifying potential knowledge gaps that can be addressed with further focussed self-study.

The overall course objective is to provide delegates with a practical and concise overview of BABOK®, with the opportunity for delegates to discuss and relate this to their day-to-day work.

This course has two variants: It can be run as a one day or a two day course.  It is highly flexible, and can be tailored to meet your team’s specific needs:
