You know, I started my career as an IT consultant who loved programming code.
How’d I get from there to a full fledged BA?
Well, the truth is, I slowly learnt over a period of five years.
First, I signed up for BA roles in my IT consulting projects, despite my other colleagues leaning towards IT Architect and Programmer roles.
Next, I learnt how to elicit and document system requirements to a high degree of quality.
I also learnt how to stand up in front of a group of users and steer them towards agreeing a set of system requirements or business process workarounds.
I remember I signed up for large scale Business and IT Transformation projects, specifically asking to be one of the BAs.
It would be a boon if the project was banking or insurance related, as I felt those were the industries where cutting edge Ops and IT work was being done.
Doing the above allowed me to transition from an IT guy to a Banking Business Analyst.
Perhaps you can do the same.
And if you’re serious about becoming a Banking Business Analyst, then you need to get some solid tips on what to do.
