International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) is a non-profit professional association focused on developing the role and professional recognition of the business analyst.
The Zurich Chapter was formed in April 2009 and our value proposition centres on being the “Business Analyst Networking Hub”, providing our members and the wider business analysis community with knowledge sharing, events, professional development, best practice & standards, and professional certification. The Zurich Chapter also works collaboratively with other professional associations, enabling a centralised approach to the development of the business analysis profession within Switzerland.
Business Analysis is the set of tasks, knowledge, and techniques required to identify business needs and determine solutions to business problems. A business analyst works as a liaison among stakeholders in order to elicit, analyse, communicate and validate requirements for change.
The role of the business analyst has evolved significantly over the last couple of years in Zurich. The valuable contributions made by the business analyst are now becoming recognised at all levels within the organisation to ascertain business problems or identify opportunity areas, to enable successful business solutions and meet the challenging needs of companies today. This evolution of the business analyst role has benefited as organisations undergo significant changes to respond to economic uncertainties. Business analysts are now increasingly working within areas such as business strategy, organisational change, operational improvements, and new product/service development.
