    There’s a stereotype surrounding the technology world that you have to be a developer or an engineer to get a job. But that’s only one path. Business Analysis is a relatively new field and a lot of people don’t know about it. How to Start a Business Analysis Career is fantastic, low cost, resource that can kickstart your career transition into technology. If you’re new to the work force or if you’re wanting to make a change and re-invent yourself, this book will help you evaluate your career int There’s a stereotype surrounding the technology world that you have to be a developer or an engineer to get a job. But that’s only one path. Business Analysis is a relatively new field and a lot of people don’t know about it. How to Start a Business Analysis Career is fantastic, low cost, resource that can kickstart your career transition into technology. If you’re new to the work force or if you’re wanting to make a change and re-invent yourself, this book will help you evaluate your career interest in the context of the technology industry. The author outlines all of the steps to identify your existing transferable skills and maps them to a business analyst’s day-to-day work environment. You get the big picture overview of the industry as well as the specific details that make this a very practical guide. Not only will you know more about the industry, you’l learn a lot about yourself and how your current expertise can be applied in new ways. Gaining clarity around a BA’s daily functions, takes the mystery out of what really goes on in technology jobs. Plus, you will learn where the jobs are and how to go about landing your first job in the field. There are great additional resources and links, embedded in the book, which have been thoughtfully curated, saving you a lot of time in researching other quality sources. It is worth it’s price alone, as a reference tool. If you’re even remotely interested in getting into the tech industry, but just never thought it possible because of your outdated work history or education, please get this book and read it. You may find that you don’t like technology and have saved yourself a lot of time, cost and effort. You may find you only like a specific area of technology, and you can refine your focus. Or you may find that this is a way to leverage your domain knowledge from your career in sales or administration and add a new level of value to your company. Business analysis is a cross functional role that cuts across every aspect of a company. By reading this book, you have a much broader picture of what really goes on when an organization makes technology decisions. And by following the author’s advice, you can refine your own path; either from the start, or as you progress. At any age, ethnicity or gender, business analysis is an open field of opportunity. I’m living proof. I started as a woman at age 47 with no technology background. I was that analog worker on the brink of being irrelevant in today’s digital high tech job market. I began my transition and skills upgrade by starting as a business analyst and am now leading product development at a major media company working with emerging technologies. Laura Brandenburg’s comprehensive guide was my first step and I still refer to this book for ideas on process and draw inspiration from these pages. Getting retrained can be costly and time consuming. There are no shortcuts, but there are other ways to make a transition that leverage your existing skills, and this book will show you how to get going. For anyone who is interested in making a career shift into the world of technology, starting as a BA, can be a lucrative opportunity open to people from all backgrounds. How to Start a Business Analyst Career is a rich resource, gives you all the tools you need to get started, and puts you on the right track from the very beginning. It is an essential guide to becoming a business analyst and can be your personal gateway to a new career in technology.

    I bought the 1st edition couple of years back and this is the second edition. It is a very good refresher to what I was doing and what I did not. I'm between jobs and this book helped me to restructure my resume. The result of that is I got a 100 % hit rate for of call back (or maybe the job market is in need of BA!) One thing I like about this book is Laura incorporates practical ideas from courses she conducted and professionals she mentored into this book.

One thing I like about this book is Laura incorporates practical ideas from courses she conducted and professionals she mentored into this book. This means you are reading into what other professionals has been doing and not solely experience from the author. I'd say this book worth your time. Need not to say, this book is written in a plain English and easy to read. I recommend anyone who is aspiring to be a BA, want a sneak peak of how BA works or thinking to move on to another BA job, should read this book.

    An excellent real-world guide I have found this book to be an excellent and practical guide to the path of the BA and some steps to get one moving towards that goal. Laura has a gift for shooting straight and not overpopulation the book with too much esoteric jargon. This is not a guide to BA practices. There are plenty such resources. Rather, this is a practical overview of the profession as a whole, with advice on career transitioning that I find humble and honest. Highly recommended.

    I found most of the advice common knowledge, but perhaps it is intended for people who haven't worked on project management and are contemplating whether to do it or not.
