What does the Agile BA course cover?

Introducing an Agile approach has a significant impact on the role of the Business Analyst, on their existing skills and their way of working. Whilst traditional skills are still valuable, new skills and ways of working need to be adopted to harness the benefits of a new way of working and to appreciate the different relationships with co-workers.

Based on the Agile Business Consortium’s well-established Agile Project Framework, the guidance gives context to the Business Analyst role beyond the individual project, in relation to organisational mission and strategy, and provides additional depth and guidance for the Business Analyst role.

This AgileBA course covers the 13 areas in the Agile BA handbook over 12 modules. They are:

  1. Introduction and The Role of a Business Analyst in an Agile World
  2. Agile Fundamentals and the Agile BA
  3. The Agile Business Case

  7. Workshops
  8. Modelling
