The Agile Business Analyst

Not your typical agile class! Learn how business analysis and agile based project management fit into an agile implementation.

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. 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 for your organization to have a smoother agile transformation by addressing these necessary skills. If you have already implemented agile, our course will give you ideas to optimize your transformation and handle the problems that your company is experiencing.

This course provides practical knowledge and skills to use an agile approach in software development. It builds on the philosophy, the approach, and the methodology of agile software development presented in the Agile Business Analysis 101 course. The main focus of the class is to provide insight into scrum and show how business analysis and project management contributes to agile practices. Agile techniques, such as writing effective user stories, are also introduced. This class is excellent anyone moving into the agile methodology and also a must for leaders who are looking to improve their company’s agile program.
