The Industry Standard 3-Stage Progression Strategy
Business analysts need different skills at of their careers.
Our BA archetypes illustrate how you can increase your value as a business analyst by progressively upskilling yourself at each stage.
Justin the Jr. Analyst (Stage 1)
As a Jr analyst, Justin has been tasked with supporting the existing applications for his employer by handling enhancements and taking care of the analysis on big fixes.
As soon as Justin learns how these systems operate, his employer will make more complex work opportunities available to him to help him with his skills development and career progression.
Just has just the right skills be handle this kind of work, and is looking forward to the next stage in his business analysis career.
Ingrid the Intermediate Analyst (Stage 2)
Ingrid once was where Justin is, but as an intermediate-level analyst, Ingrid has upskilled herself to handle the most complex enhancement request tasks and to help the company deliver the requirements and specifications on the net new software products that her employer needs her to deliver.
After some professional training and some apprenticeship under Shauna, Ingrid has now become real comfortable dealing with the more senior stakeholders and diving deep with the developers when she needs to.
Shauna the Sr. Analyst (Stage 3)
Shauna can barely remember being at Justin's level because it was about 9 years ago that she started her BA career.
Shauna has always known that doing the same job for a long period of time would not give her the career progression that she wants.
That's why, she's relentlessly pursued a value-based BA career strategy instead of a time-based career strategy.
Our upcoming Career Progression Playbook for Business Analysts will explain these two strategies in much more detail.
