Volunteers Needed for IIBA Research and Innovation Project
IIBA has developed community-driven standards and certifications for years. Now, we are ready to do community supported Research and Innovation (R&I), to investigate the Business Analysis profession and report on that research.
This research will come in the form of White Papers, Applied Research Papers, and Basic Research Papers.
Research and Innovation is creating a set of complementary Research Teams. These teams are tight-knit, self-managed groups of three researchers, who work together to collect data using a particular approach. Researchers will regularly post public updates about the kind of work they are doing through IIBA on social media tools, especially Twitter and LinkedIn. Currently R & I is preparing four approaches:
Survey Research Group
Interview Research Group
Literature Research Group
Web Research Group
