Not your typical intro to agile class! This course focuses on teaching the basics of agile while explaining the limitations and provides recommendations for avoiding typical agile implementation pitfalls.

The Agile Manifesto was created by and for software developers and doesn't account for many issues that an enterprise level transformation will encounter like analysis, reporting, governance, project management, or regulatory considerations. It is a methodology on how to deliver software. Enterprise level transformations are failing (or not performing as well as anticipated) because these complexities are not addressed. In this course, we will provide insights to allow your organization to have a smoother agile transformation.

Specifically this course explains the agile methodology and its terminology while discussing the role that analysts and project managers can play. Agile topics include the agile sprint cycle, team roles, backlog creation and prioritization, iterative design, minimum viable product (MVP), definitions of done and definition of ready, the estimation process including story points and team velocity, sprint retrospective and its role in the continuous improvement process, the agile view of releasing software, the customer feedback process, and writing quality user stories. Whether you are a business analyst, a project manager, or an agile leader who is looking for ways to improve their program, this class is for you.



Agile Business Analysis 101 is a must for anyone who is making the transition to agile software development or who wants to improve their agile process.

This course creates the foundation for the other courses in the Agile learning path. It is designed to benefit business leaders, business analysts, business architects, project managers, scrum masters, and anyone involved in software development. The terminology and processes in agile are covered with special emphasis on the role that business analysts and project managers must play for a successful implementation.
