Course description

Agile Business Analysis Essentials or Certified Agile Business Analyst

On agile projects, requirements are captured and documented differently using novel techniques such as user stories, various types of backlog, and by making extensive use of agile requirements modelling practices. Agile first captures requirements at a broad, abstract level and then prioritizes them using a 3-step approach before exploring them more deeply in cycles according to their priority. Traditional BA training generally doesn't cover these approaches.

Combining our Agile BA Basics and Agile Requirements Management courses, this program presents learners with a dynamic, interactive and hands-on experience that covers the entire requirements management process in agile projects, including exploring the difference between agile and waterfall requirements, applying concepts that help write effective user stories, supporting the process with various models and use cases, discussing agile planning, prioritization and backlog maintenance, and covering the requirements validation process through the end-of-sprint demo and the iteration review.

This program focuses on the actions, artifacts, and deliverables that need to take place in order to produce requirements that fully represent business value and the needs of stakeholders in an effective and efficient fashion. Additionally, this program will prepare participants to pass the Cerified Agile Business Analyst exam, which is often included in the cost of this program.
