Making Project Management work for Pakistan – 98% Exam Success Rate (2003-2019)

Professional in Business Analysis PMI PBA® Certification Training in Lahore is a hands-on program designed to equip participants with the concepts of Business Analysis. Business analysis has become a competency of critical importance to project management. Becoming certified as a business analysis (BA) expert can move your career in a fresh direction while opportunities for BAs are on the rise.

Inaccurate requirements gathering consistently ranks in the top three causes of project failure yet only half of organizations have the resources in place to perform this function properly, according to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession® research.

It’s time to become the certified expert your organization needs. If you work with stakeholders in defining requirements, shaping project outputs and driving intended business outcomes, the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® will spotlight your valuable skills.

In this Training, participants will also go through PMI PBA® exams in order to consolidate their knowledge. The simulation exams will enable the participants to do their own gap analysis to see how they should focus on their PMI PBA® exam preparation in order to be successful.
