Competencies of a Business Analyst

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

A competency is something a business analyst needs in order to perform his or her job effectively.

The set of business analysis competencies can be divided into three broad groups.

  • Behavioural skills and personal qualitie
  • Business knowledge
  • Techniques

Behavioural skills are arguably more important than technical or business skills, as they are prerequisite for working with other people.
It is often said that it is easier to give a person with good behavioural skills the techniques needed for a job than to graft behavioural skills on to a good technician.
