HR professionals across the industry are changing their roles to improve business outcomes 

HR professionals across the industry are evolving their roles to improve business outcomes. They are becoming more strategic, more business focused and more solution oriented. They are also becoming results-driven innovators who can turn data into insights that drive growth and profitability. Business analysis is a critical skill for every business, but especially in today's changing and evolving economy. This is because business analysis skills are no longer only useful for technical roles. They're being integrated across all industries and roles. 


Business analysis is an essential skill to have in today's changing economy 

With so many companies looking to use technology to their advantage, there's a huge demand for professionals who can understand the impact of new technologies on the way people work and how those changes affect their business processes.  
Business analysis skills are more important than ever in today’s economy and are being integrated across all industries including  Human Resources. The Human Resource (HR) function has an increasing need for advanced strategic thinking in defining solutions that deliver organizational value. HR needs a playbook of repeatable processes of uncovering the real business issues to solve, better techniques for determining solutions that are impactful, and a focused way of assembling compelling business cases that gain organizational support. 


As the demand for highly skilled HR professionals increases, so does the need for upskilling 

As the demand for highly skilled HR professionals increases, so does the need for continuing education and upskilling. As a result, there is a growing demand for HR professionals with advanced business skills and expertise. HR professionals who can offer solutions to business problems will be in high demand as companies retool and reinvent themselves to stay competitive in an increasingly volatile workplace environment. The goal of this new program is to provide you with professional training that will enable you to offer these solutions while enhancing your value by leveraging business analysis skills that are not currently part of your day-to-day responsibilities as an HR professional.

By the end of the program, participants will receive the Human Resources Solutions Certificate (HRSC) and be equipped to sit IIBA’s Entry Certificate in Business Analysis™ (ECBA™) exam.
