ICAgile Agile Business Analysis

If you’re a BA in an organization moving from waterfall to Agile, does that mean you’ll be lost with nothing to do?

AgiliousAgile Business Analysis

COURSE DESCRIPTION

We certainly don’t think so. This course will show you how to combine your existing business analysis skills with Agile tools and techniques. This means you’ll be better equipped to deliver value to product owners, manage all of the stakeholder wishlists and support your project team in having a shared common understanding of the product vision and features. This course leverages the Agile Extension to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge™ and shows how the Discovery/Delivery techniques covered in the Extension can be applied effectively in agile projects.

WHAT YOU WILL GET

Using a combination of interactive presentations, problem-solving exercises, innovation learning games, and team structured simulations, the experiential workshop enables participants to:

  • Understand the roles and responsibilities involved in product ownership and where the business analyst can contribute
  • Understand the shape of a well-formed backlog and how to populate it progressively
  • Strategies and practices for integrating the BA with Agile Software Development teams
  • Five principles for agile business analysis and how they influence effective outcomes for our customers.
