Agile Business Analysis

BA112 | 3 days | €540

This 3-day case-study based training is designed to give you detailed understanding of the role and responsibilities of a business analyst involved in Agile projects.

Overview

Every aspect of our work and life is going Agile and so is Business Analysis. As business analysts have one of the most important roles in a project, the result of their work directly determines the outcome of the whole project and the transition to agile way of working needs to be considered.

More organizations are beginning to embrace the Agile approach because of its adaptability, response to change and faster time-to-market. In these times of increased competition, customer demands need to be met quickly. The traditional business analysis methodology does not meet these requirements – it expects that you specify your requirements entirely (and time is never enough to make them ideal) before moving on to other stages of the process in a linear fashion, only to find out later that they are no longer relevant and do not bring value to the customer.

The Agile Business Analysis training is based on a case study, and every module consists of theory, case study examples, and hands-on exercise, which allow the attendees to practice their knowledge, experience real-world situations, discuss problems and possible solutions.

The last day of the training is dedicated to a business simulation, where the training participants can put into practice the knowledge and understanding of Agile they gained during the training. Several retrospective sessions, allow participants to stop for a moment, look at their work, discuss their performance, reflect back on the topics taught the previous days and take steps to improvement.
