Business Analysis in Agile Projects

This course is compliant with IIBA® and A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide), including the recently-published Agile Extension.

GK# 2482

Course Overview

Traditional system-development methodologies are rapidly being replaced by more iterative or agile approaches. More organizations are realizing the benefits of faster product deployment at a lower cost, with less rework due to missed requirements. Effective business analysis is key to developing those requirements and keeping projects on track. This course explores the contributions of good requirements development in an Agile environment and equips business analysts with the critical thinking, analytical skills, and necessary people skills they need to add value to every Agile project.

In this course, you will learn the techniques for discovering, understanding, and describing product vision; understanding and depicting personas and user stories; identifying and describing additional requirements and acceptance criteria; modeling desired product features and functions; working collaboratively with other team members; and communicating expertly with colleagues, sponsors, and business customers. Lively lectures combined with insightful demonstrations and realistic practice exercises provide you with the competence and confidence you need to improve project outcomes through better requirements definition.

A variety of demonstrations, large-group activities, and small-group team exercises will refine and enhance your Agile business analysis skills. Working in small groups, you and your peers will identify, discuss, and practice the tools and techniques your organization should be using to better define and communicate requirements for your Agile project.
