Agile Business Analyst

The business analyst role is critical for successful agile projects and development. Despite this, there has been little in the way of detailed best practice guidance that directly addresses the role, responsibilities and skills of the Agile Business Analyst

/ WHAT IS

The Agile Business Analysis (AgileBA) certification 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.

Agile Business Analysts are an integrated part of the Agile team throughout the life of the project. They facilitate collaboration within the project team and across the business. In addition to their traditional skills of modelling and specification, the Agile Business Analyst requires new skills in collaboration, facilitation, leadership and coaching. They must adapt to new ways of eliciting, specifying and managing requirements.

Training and certification has been designed to give the Business Analyst the skills needed to successfully gather, analyse, validate and champion the requirements throughout an Agile project. It also gives context to the Agile Business Analyst role beyond the individual project, in relation to organisational mission and strategy, providing additional depth and guidance for business analysis in an agile context.

AgileBA guidance, training and certification are designed to benefit a wide range of roles including:
Business Analysts; Change Analysts; Project Managers; Scrum Product Owners/Managers; Systems Analysts and Agile Developers

This is a 5-day event facilitated by one of Snap Tech’s most experienced accredited trainers. You’ll find a comfortable, ready-to-learn atmosphere where you’ll receive expert instruction and guidance, interact with your peers, and gain the real-world skills that matter.
