This is an online bootcamp, a flexible alternative that provides online access to our in-depth curriculum, hands-on assignments, and real-time support from Adriana Beal, a specialist with 18 years of experience in business analysis in a variety of industries.
The program is modular, with each module consisting on a series of online resources and interactions with your coach happening mostly via email. Individual calls may be scheduled, for example if the participant wants to simulate a stakeholder interview.
In this bootcamp, you'll be confronted with the situations and problems that arise in real world projects. You'll apply business analysis techniques to discover, analyze, negotiate, represent, and validate the requirements of a new or modified software system. Feedback is provided each step of the way by an experienced business analyst and product manager, as opposed to an instructor with little to no exposure to the realities of the business analysis work.
There are two more classes scheduled for 2017, starting on Aug 8 and October 3. Regardless of which class you're interested in joining, we recommend applying now, as the number of slots is limited, and applicants will be considered in chronological order.
Yes. Many successful business analysts started out with no prior experience, and learned on the job. You'll be simulating their experience in an accelerated model of high-impact learning that condenses several years of theory and practice into this bootcamp program.
In addition to getting ready to hit the ground running when you start your first (or next) project as a business analyst, this program will give you the skills and confidence needed to interview well for business analyst roles. You'll also leave with a Professional Portfolio that would take years to develop in the real world and will give you a leg up as a candidate to a BA job.
Absolutely! This program is based on proprietary techniques developed over the years by consultant Adriana Beal precisely to help struggling BAs who weren't achieving a high level of performance in their jobs despite all the training and reading they went through.
The program is structured to help you master the critical skills required to succeed in a business analyst job. And when you master those skills, things will never be the same.
No. Besides being an expensive tactic to learn whether you like this type of work, the number of seats available in this bootcamp is very limited (only 10 per class, with only a couple of public classes happening each year), so you'd be taking a slot that could be going to someone who is already invested in developing a career in business analysis.

Even though is a high-touch program in which each participant receives individual attention from internationally recognized business analysis consultant Adriana Beal, to make it affordable for the right audience, the cost is set at $470 per module. In total there are 6 modules. Everybody starts the bootcamp with the first module, and from there the program branches out to accommodate each participant's profile.
You must start from Module 1, which will help your coach better understand your strengths and weaknesses. From there, you can choose between two options for Module 2. Once you finish Modules 1 and 2, depending on where you are in the BA competence ladder, you may be able to skip some of the other modules, taking only the practice you need to become a successful BA.
If you need to pause the program for a while to take care of an emergency or new priority, just get in touch with Adriana and she will work with you on a plan to allow you to successfully finish the bootcamp at a later date.
Each module of the bootcamp program is planned around two weeks of activities, with an expectation of 5 hours of practice a week. You can choose between dedicating one hour a day from Monday to Friday, or five hours each Saturday, or any combination of hours during weekdays and weekends. It's recommended that you block a minimum of 1 hour for each study session (ideally 90 minutes to two hours) with email alerts and other distractions turned off, as it will help you produce better results in less time.
After you conclude Module 2, Adriana will present you with a choice of real-world projects to tackle next. Each module corresponds to a project that will help you focus on specific fundamentals of business analysis, from effectively interviewing business stakeholders to understand their needs to creating requirements that are valuable, specific, accurate, unambiguous, and solve the right problem.
Depending on the strengths and weaknesses identified during Modules 1 and 2, you may decide to take all 4 additional modules, or work on a subset of the remaining modules to improve your skills in specific areas.
