Tell us a bit about yourself, Allie.
Sure, I’m Application Support Lead at FiveFriday, with over 5 years work experience – 3 of which has been spent in pseudo business analysis roles.
Why did you decide to take the foundation in business analysis course?
My need was to improve my knowledge of business analysis, enhance my application of it, and to give me formal certification.
More specifically to I wanted to utilise the information from the course as a way to gain a deeper understanding of where to position myself in the business analysis domain, outside of the linear career path I’m currently following.
This course will certainly be the guide for my way forward.
How will the course learnings help you in your career?
It’s definitely given me a full understanding what is expected of a business analyst, and training in the correct tools to use as a business analyst.
What was your biggest learning – did you have an AHA! Moment?
It’s hard to pick just one – every section of the course was incredibly valuable to me.
What did you enjoy most about your training experience?
I enjoyed how insightful the course was. It was a massive eye-opener for me.
What would you tell someone who is considering doing this course?
This course is a good foundation for increasing your business analysis knowledge, and a great start if you are looking to start your journey to becoming a business analyst.
In the spirit of ‘keep growing’, what would you like to learn next?
I still need to decide which courses, but I’ll be back.
