Course Overview

The Agile Business Analysis (Agile BA) Practitioner & Foundation course, accredited by the APMG, and created in conjunction with the DSDM Consortium, is designed to give the Business Analyst the skills needed to successfully gather, analyse, validate and champion the requirements throughout an Agile project. The course will describe the most popular Agile approaches and will use the DSDM Agile Project Framework to take the Agile Business Analyst through the phases of an Agile project.

To remain competitive organisations must shorten the time it takes to deliver business change effectively. Agile development approaches enable project teams to be more responsive to customer expectations and to deliver business value early.

Agile Business Analysts are an integrated part of the Agile team, working before projects and programmes are defined, and throughout the life of the project. They facilitate collaboration within teams and across the business. In addition to their skills of modelling and specification, the Agile Business Analyst requires new skills to support collaboration, facilitation and iterative working. They must adapt to new ways of gathering, analysing and managing the emerging and evolving requirements.
