Agile for Business Analysts Training
Duration: 2 Days
Course Delivery: Classroom, Virtual Classroom
Credits: 14 PDUs
Business analysis professionals frequently find themselves on Agile development teams only to discover that many of the tools and techniques no longer work effectively. Agile Scrum is an incremental, iterative framework for project management and software development in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.
Project success is dependent on how effective you manage change. Many traditional project teams run into trouble when they try to define all of the requirements up front, but the reality is that the requirements document is usually insufficient. Regardless of how much effort goes into it, requirements change during the project and have to be updated. Agile experts know that if they have the ability to elicit detailed requirements up front then they can also do the same when they actually need the information. In short, agile professionals strive to truly manage change, not to prevent it.
Individuals certified at this level will have demonstrated their ability to:
• Explain the business case for Agile development.
• Explain how Agile projects can benefit from a business analysis approach.
• Conduct the business analysis activities that occur before an Agile project is launched.
• Apply UML modeling techniques to define the solution scope of an Agile project.
• Apply Agile and business analysis best practices to elicit, analyze and communicate requirements.
• Lead an Agile requirements workshop.
• Participate in Agile best practices like a daily scrum, sprint planning and leading a retrospective.
• Manage a product backlog.
• Guide the users through iterative product evaluations.
• Establish post-project assessments to ensure that the product continues to meet the business objectives.
• The course will explore how your projects can successfully manage requirements in an effective Agile environment.
