I am a Project Manager should I get CBAP certified?

This is a question or doubt that arises in many professionals mind, during the

course of their professional career.

And we come across this question very often, either as a doubt of why should I

go for Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) when I am a PMP certified

professional or a project manager with 10+ years of experience or as seeking an

advice how will CBAP certification add value to me given my background of

Project management.

My suggestion would be yes, the reasons are as below:

With changing market scenario it’s always better to upskill and not get

confined to a particular skill or role

With more and more automation coming to play and tools performing most of

the PM tasks the BA and PM roles are getting merged

As one makes career progress in professional life the need for having

diversified and multiple skills becomes more evident.We may need to learn human

resource practices, finance, and accounting, legal and marketing. And the one

with multiple skills and certifications become the obvious choice for the

leadership role.

The good part is having the project management experience will definitely be a

big advantage to have a well-rounded career profile with business analysis

skills added to it.

The other good part is lots of corporates recognize Certified Business Analysis

Professional (CBAP) designation as part of their competency framework as well.

Canada which is the undisputable leader in this segment has excellent

recognition in North America, Canada, Australia and all other major geographies.

Hence getting geared to train and get certified for CBAP is one of the wisest

career move for a professional having project management skills and looking up

to move higher in the career to a leadership position.

Having business analysis skills and being a CBAP will provide you an extra armor

to fight in a volatile and uncertain world.
