Business Analysis Knowledge Academy started in 2010 as a collaborative effort between three individuals in the Kentucky area to provide workshop training through the Louisville IIBA Chapter; and eventually the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter. The first workshops were created around a self-created use case Gillian's Garden; then further workshops were built upon this use case over the next five years, adding more detail to the use case with each workshop.
In 2019, Business Analysis Knowledge Academy identified a gap in the marketplace that needed to be filled. They wrote an ECBA™ Certification Study Guide to help prepare students to take the IIBA® Entry Certificate in Business Analysis (ECBA™) certification exam. Shortly thereafter adding study sheets as study material to further help students prepare for the ECBA™ certification exam.
In 2020, Business Analysis Knowledge Academy added a study guide and study sheets for the IIBA® Agile Analysis (IIBA®-AAC) Certification. In 2021, the ECBA™ Certification Study Guide, version 2.0 was published.
In 2022 Business Analysis Knowledge Academy added digital material to their product line with the DigitalABA™ study aid.
