To qualify for taking the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP®) exam, a certain level of training and work experience is required. This is a good thing. In particular the work experience requirement separates the CBAP® from other certifications. When a potential employer reads CBAP® on an applicant’s resume, it not only means that the applicant is trained in business analysis, but has worked in the field.

However, the IIBA® excludes testing from the work experience qualification. Specifically, hours that are dedicated to: “creating and executing test scripts, reporting on testing status, creating test plans/strategies, etc.” [1]are excluded. I am willing to accept the exclusion of executing test scripts and even the reporting of their results. However, I think the IIBA®needs to include the work effort involved in creating test plans/strategies; here are my four reasons.
