It covers all tasks a business analyst should know and control; all these 30 tasks being groups into 6 knowledge areas (Business Analysis Planning and Monitoring, Elicitation and Collaboration, Requirements Lifecycle Management, Strategy Anaysis, Requirements Analysis and Design Definition, and Solution Evaluation).

The role of business analyst has been dramatically extended with the 3rd version of the BABoK® Guide.
