Buffalo, NY IIBA Chapter  


COFFEE HOUR AND BABOK v3 - June 9, 2015

The Chapter will be hosting monthly coffee hours, rather than formal study groups. These informal meetings are meant to discuss a topic from the BABOK 3.0, the second Tuesday of each month. 

The new release of the BABOK is a significant update from prior versions, so we're working to build our collective understanding of the new material and the related changes to the practice of Business Analysis. Each month we'll choose a focus for the next month's gathering.  Keep an eye on our website for the topics prior to each meeting. 

Why not start your day focused on continuous improvement and career growth? 

Stay tuned for more details.


What is the Buffalo Chapter of the IIBA?

The mission of the Buffalo Chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is to further the business analysis profession by providing regular EDUCATIONAL sessions, formal TRAINING and MENTORING, and NETWORKING opportunities!

What is a Business Analyst?

An analyst works as a liaison among stakeholders in order to elicit, analyze, communicate and validate requirements for changes to business processes and information systems. The business analyst understands business problems and opportunities and recommends SOLUTIONS. Many roles play the part of a Business Analyst including Project Managers, Systems Analysts, Product Owners, Enterprise Analysts, Enterprise and Solution Architects, and many more. The Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK), the definitive guide and the internationally recognized standard for the business analysis profession, describes common activities, tasks and deliverables of the analysis field.

Benefits of Membership of the Chapter:

  • SKILL Development
  • Hands on EXPERIENCE with tools and techniques
  • Study group participation for CCBA and CBAP CERTIFICATIONS
  • NETWORKING opportunities
  • Public SPEAKING experience

2015 is an EXCITING year for our chapter and we’re going to start with a big bang! Our FIRST MEETING will set the stage for the year and will introduce NEW LEADERS and DIRECTORS onto the team, and introduce the new version of the BABOK! We look forward to seeing you all there!
