About this Course

This workshop is designed to prepare delegates for the Business Analysis Oral Examination. Success in the Oral Examination leads to the award of the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

We advise delegates to book onto this course a couple of weeks before the real oral event, wherever practical, so that delegates have time to prepare themselves further if necessary.

Detailed Information

The workshop is a loosely structured day with an interactive style, which will cover the following topics. The focus will be on 'oral style' questions and answers, covering the content of the BA Oral Examination syllabus.

  • Introductions and overview of the workshop
  • Main features of the Oral Examination - process and content
  • Review of ISEB's guidelines for the Oral Examination
  • Review of the Oral Examination Syllabus - mandatory topics
  • Review of the Knowledge based specialism subjects applicable to the delegates in the workshop*
  • Review of the Practitioner specialism subjects applicable to the delegates in the workshop*

* If there is a wide variety of distinct modules taken in the workshop, these topics will be dealt with in a generic fashion.

  • Delegates should have passed each of 4 written examinations as specified by the ISEB requirements for the Business Analysis Diploma scheme. Ideally delegates will have already registered with the BCS to take the actual Oral Examination.
  • Delegates should review their written examination course notes before attending this event. Also it is highly desirable that delegates obtain and review the BCS publication 'Business Analysis' by Debra Paul et al prior to attending the course.

Pre-course reading

Delegates will be provided with pre-course reading prior to attending the course. The success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials. It is recommended that candidates spend 10 hours working through the pre-reading.
