The traditional business analysis approach involves initial planning and the driving of business projects through sequential phases.

More recently, business analysts are becoming more engaged in Agile practices, and the level of awareness of the profession has increased greatly. As such, certifications are geared towards Agile Business analysis to give business analysts the skills required to deliver effective business change, value and customer expectations.
