Introducing the PMI-PBA, PMI’s response to the demand for Business Analysis Certification for BA professionals involved on projects. Discover the role of the Business Analyst working with the Project Manager, and in some cases, filling both roles. Find out how IIBA differs from PMI on the BA focus. We will also discuss new business analysis standards for the exam.
