Course description

Agile Business Analysis Foundation and Practitioner (APMG)

The Agile Business Analysis (Agile BA) course, accredited by the APMG is designed to give the Business Analyst the skills needed to successfully gather, analyse, validate and champion the requirements throughout an Agile project. The course will describe the most popular Agile approaches and will use the DSDM Agile Project Framework to take the Agile Business Analyst through the phases of an Agile project. To remain competitive in rapidly changing market conditions, organisations must shorten the time it takes to deliver business change effectively. Agile development approaches enable project teams to be more responsive to customer expectations and to deliver business value early. Agile Business Analysts are an integrated part of the Agile team throughout the life of the project. They facilitate collaboration within the project team and across the business. In addition to their traditional skills of modelling and specification, the Agile Business Analyst requires new skills in collaboration, facilitation, leadership and coaching. They must adapt to new ways of eliciting, specifying and managing requirements.
