According to the latest figures published by International Institute for Business Analysis (IIBA) for the Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) — New Zealand has the highest per capita CBAPs in the world (5.93 per million population) as well as being ranked fourth of 33 countries in total numbers (see table below).

While admittedly the per capita figures are skewed by the relatively small population in NZ, the absolute numbers reinforce that for a country of this size, we are at the forefront of professionalising the discipline; which speaks volumes for the approach taken by IIBA NZ in supporting business analysis professional development — particularly with our CBAP Accelerator Programme, an intensive¬†13-week study group mentored by CBAPs.

The 2009 NZ Business Analysis Baseline survey indicated that NZ still has some way to go in recognising the role and value of business analysis, so we have been running several programs to promote better understanding. We hope these initiatives alongside increasing the number of CBAPs will show an improvement, so we will be running a 2010 survey soon to look at this.

If you would like to know more about these programs or how you could work toward your own CBAP, please feel free to contact me or start a discussion here.
