BCS Certificate in Business Analysis Practice

Growing with Business Analysis

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

It was in the year 2004 (barely 13 years ago) that the International Institute of Business Analysis was founded. It is a concept much older than that. The BCS or the British Computer Society which is now responsible for awarding Business Analysis certification to the delegates was established around 60 years ago in 1957 AD. It was only in the last 10 years or so that developments took place in the field of Business Analysis at a very rapid pace. Business Analysis lays emphasis on refining the present business situations and recognizing business solutions for the problems faced by the businesses.

ABOUT Crewe

Located within the borough of Cheshire East, 158 miles north of London, Crewe is a railway town of Cheshire, England. With a population of 72,863, Crewe is known for its large railway station. It is also known for Crewe Works – an organisation that used to manufacture and recondition locomotives. Crewe is also known as the birthplace of Rolls-Royce. Rolls-Royce remained in Crewe from 1946 to 2002 i.e. for a span of 56 years. Now it is the Bentley motor cars that are being manufactured in Crewe.

A mention of Creu is found in the Domesday Book - a record of the "Great Survey" of much of England & Wales that was completed in 1086 to determine the taxes that were owed to the King. However, it was not until 1843 that Crewe had its first modern settlement owing to a development in the railway system that had started in the early 1840’s. During the Second World War, Crewe became a target of the Nazi forces because of the railway junction as well as the presence of Rolls-Royce engineering works.

Developments

In 2008, the development of the current bus station and main shopping area were given up due to a shortage of funds. The railway station was also to be modified and as a part of the plan, it was to be moved to Basford. Anyhow, no such things happened and the current station underwent only some maintenance work instead. A new plan was developed by the Cheshire East Council. A Lifestyle Centre, furnished with swimming pool, a library and a gym was to be a part of the new plan. A new transport hub has been planned for Crewe that would be completed by 2027.
