IIBA® Australia Chapter Professional Day Series
The IIBA Australia board and branches have been working hard since this strategy was first identified; the Professional Day evolved out of the board planning day analysis in September 2012. A year later with many hours of voluntary board and branch effort, the Professional Day series is a reality.
IIBA Australia is a “not for profit” professional organisation for business analysis, therefore we focus on delivering very affordable professional development. While IIBA Australia is a “not for profit” we are not a “for loss” professional organisation, therefore we rely on your continued support to be able to spread the word about the “value” of good business analysis.
On that note, hopefully you will bring a manager or executive along to see how business analysis can improve your organisation’s service/product delivery.
The IIBA Australia Chapter would like to thank the Professional Day sponsors as well as IIBA Global for their support in facilitating the reach of renowned and topical speakers, to benefit the Australian business analysis community. We hope you support the professional days and attend, so the event continues in years to follow!

President IIBA Australia Chapter
IIBA® Australia Chapter
Many Business Analysts in Australia presume that when they or their organisation pays International Institute of Business Analysis® (IIBA) membership ($125 US for new membership or $110 US for renewal) it immediately goes to IIBA Australia Chapter. This is not true, as the IIBA Australia Chapter does not receive any portion from the membership fee paid.
IIBA Australia Chapter was first formed in 2006 and has increasingly delivered value to the Australian membership base and wider Business Analysis profession. The chapter comprises of:
- The Board, delivering the chapter strategies and national initiatives (such as webinars); and
- The local Branches (Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) each delivering a number of events and study groups.
Over the journey IIBA in Australia has grown into the 3rd largest membership base throughout the world, however financially IIBA Australia Chapter has not received the membership growth benefits. In July 2010 the IIBA Australia Chapter bank account was zero however through sponsorship, non-member event fees and BABOK study group fees a basic budget has been developed.
This income which has been obtained through the hard work and effort of volunteers often after works hours or weekends, has been difficult to obtain and maintain but has been critical to the chapter running activities.
IIBA Australia Chapter would like to take this time and hopefully you will too to thank the efforts of the IIBA Australia Chapter board and branches, and our sponsors Candle, Bay3000, Ajilon and DDLS as they have enabled chapter activities to deliver value to the business analysis profession.

|Winner Announced for the Australian BA of the Year Award 2012! |
IIBA® Global CEO, Kathleen Barret was the first to announce the winner of the Australian BA of the Year Award for 2012, at the Building Business Capability conference in Sydney. Kathleen announced Jaya Dayal as the award recipient as part of her keynote presentation at the conference on Monday 10th September.
Kathleen also presented Jaya with her certificate at an IIBA® corporate member event in Melbourne on Friday 14th September, where IIBA® fGlobal COO Dave Bieg was also in attendance. Jaya will receive a pass to the BA World 2013 conference, as part of the award prize.
The Australian BA of the Year Award was first launched by the IIBA® Australia Chapter in 2011, and due to its success, it was continued again this year. The award promotes awareness of the BA role within Australia; recognises the valuable contribution of the BA in assisting projects or initiatives achieve successful outcomes to ‘help business do better business;’ and recognises highly skilled BAs and encourages others to develop their skills and improve awareness of the BA role across organisations.
The Australian BA of the Year Award was the brainchild of current IIBA® Australia Chapter President Tim Coventry. “I first raised the idea of this award to the IIBA® Australia Chapter Board in 2011 as I could see the fantastic work of business analysts being performed around the country, however there was no formal mechanism to acknowledge this great work and achievement,” Tim said.
The IIBA® Australia Chapter formed a sub-committee to evaluate each of the written applications received, and then to conduct interviews with the candidates. The sub-committee was Chaired by Certification and Education Director Cora Stapleton, and was also made up of Treasurer Scott Bradley and Secretary Niki Drysdale.x
“Jaya stood out to the sub-committee as a result of her genuine passion for the business analysis profession. Jaya demonstrated her active involvement in developing the BA capability within her organisation, in other people, and advocating the value of the profession to her clients,” Cora said.
The sub-committee was very impressed with the quality of applications received this year and so named Anthony Ingeri as the close runner-up for the award. Anthony is a member of the IIBA® Australia Chapter Queensland Branch Committee and also showed strong commitment to developing the business analysis profession both in his workplace and through his volunteer position with the IIBA®.
The IIBA® Australia Chapter would like to encourage other chapters to adopt this award to recognise outstanding performance in business analysis within their city, state or country. For further information on how to launch the award for your chapter, contact IIBA® Australia Chapter President
