This course will teach you how to successfully manage projects as a Business Analyst!
The fact is, not every project can have a dedicated Project Manager. Sometimes the project is simply too small, or doesn't provide enough value to warrant the overhead costs of another dedicated team member.
As a Business Analyst, having the necessary skills and techniques to successfully manage your own projects dramatically increases your value to the company, thus putting you in a great position for future promotional opportunities.

★★★★★ "I find this to be an excellent course. I have already learned some techniques that I plan to implement in my current contract role, in hopes that it may lead to a full time offer in the near future. I am also taking this instructor's Business Analyst Fundamentals course. I find them both to be very good, and there is some overlap of the material. I enjoy Jeremy's personality, and I can tell that he really enjoys helping others learn and giving them the tools to help them progress in their careers." -Samantha B.
★★★★★ "Excellent....just what I need!" -Syed
Why should I enroll?
Project Management is an extremely deep and wide ranging topic. Many colleges today have four year degrees strictly focusing on managing projects. This course is designed to take the important aspects of all those classes and align them into one bite sized course. You will learn how to successfully play both the Business Analyst and Project Manager roles.
I cut out all of the fluff and unnecessary steps to focus your learning on what is important.

Hello! My name is Jeremy Aschenbrenner, but many know me better as The BA Guide, and I'm happy you are here.
I’m a veteran Business Analyst with thousands of projects completed throughout my career. I've managed business analysis projects for companies in diverse industries including health care, telecom, automotive, transportation, consumer packaged goods, car rental agency, food and beverage, financial services, consulting, and more.
Through personal experience, I quickly learned that business analysis can be confusing and even intimidating. There’s endless business jargon, technical terms, techniques, and methodologies to learn, and countless visual diagrams, artifacts, elicitation sessions, interfaces, and KPIs to wrap your head around. I’ve been there and learned all of that. Many years ago, I also learned a valuable lesson about myself: I really enjoy mentoring others. This was the inspiration for The BA Guide.
Here is where I come in and offer guidance.
I take that broad world of business analysis and build a structure and processes within it. I then break down those individual segments until they are easy to understand by using real-life examples and scenarios to make them relatable. Finally, to help solidify and reinforce your knowledge and understanding of these key concepts and processes, I follow up with activities and quizzes.
Whether you’re an aspiring or current Business Analyst, The BA Guide courses are created with you, the learner, in mind. By design, the courses I’ve created are optimized for flexible learning in video format so you can learn at your own pace, when it’s convenient for you.
If your goal is to explore the world of business analysis or upskill and advance your career, whether that be as a Business Analyst, an Agile Analyst, a Process Analyst, a Product Owner, an AMAZING Administrator, or anything in-between, I'd love to help.
Feel free to post on the course Q&A board, message me on Udemy, or connect with me on social media. I look forward to helping you reach your personal and professional goals.
