From its origins in February 2011, through numerous iterations of design, writing, and editing, to its final publication in April 2015, the BABOK® Guide v3 has evolved into “the essential standard to help practitioners and their stakeholders deliver business value and create better business outcomes.”
Far outdistancing itself from BABOK v2, this handbook now caters to a wider base of professionals who practice in such areas as: agile methodologies, business intelligence, information technology, business architecture, and business process management. Further, this 500-page book is stoked with 50 new and improved techniques – just waiting to be tapped. As a capstone, this desk-side resource features an innovative Business Analysis Core Concept Model – an essential diagram which succinctly captures all that is Business Analysis.
The International Institute of Business Analysis proudly touts this book as “the most credible and authoritative source of knowledge and practices for business analysis” and rightly so. Learn how this invaluable resource will benefit you!
Speaker: Tom Burke
As a member of the founding Body of Knowledge Committee for BABOK 3.0, Tom Burke was instrumental in redesigning and restructuring the entire content, as part of an international, 10-member group. He further led the Solution Evaluation chapter’s team of writers, rewrote three techniques, and served in the “unglamorous” position as the deputy project manager – straddling the BA and PM roles. He has over 30 years of SDLC experience among several Fortune 50 corporations, and is certified as a CBAP and an Agile Product Owner.

Can't make it this month?
We meet approximately every month, either the second or third Wednesday of the month. So if you can't make it this month, hopefully we'll see you at the next meetup. Also, if you have an idea, game, workshop, or story to share with the group, then please contact the organizer to setup a presentation for a future meeting.
