In this podcast, I had the opportunity to speak with Dave Bieg from Project Management Institute (PMI®) regarding the role of PMI® in the realm of business analysis.  We broached the popular topic of the importance of requirements in successful projects. He provided a great overview of how PMI® approaches any of its endeavors and quite honestly it was an enlightening experience for me to learn all this. We also talk at length about PMI-PBA® – a new certification being offered by PMI® and the complete rationale behind it. 

Here is the insightful podcast with Dave:
