The Business Analyst in an Agile Environment

GK# 7652

Course Overview

In this course, you'll learn how to discover your role within an Agile team's software development, how to adapt the techniques you already use to the Agile environment, and how to use some new requirement techniques specific to Agile. Each project will be different, and the role of the BA (business analyst) may vary from project to project. However, the concepts remain relatively stable and, assuming a willingness to be adaptable (agile), you will find an exciting new way of being a BA.

A major thrust of the course is the necessity of collaborative teamwork—others may take on part of the activities for which you have sole responsibilities in the Waterfall projects; you will be more closely involved in the work management of the team.

This course is consistent with the themes of the Agile Manifesto and the Agile Extension to the BABOKĀ® Guide. Since most teams use hybrid approaches, the course considers Agile methodologies generically, rather than adhering to branded approaches, such as Scrum, XP, or Kanban.
