Agile teams and organizations find out sooner or later, that with agile, building the wrong things faster is very possible if you leave out a key component: understanding the real problem and evaluating the impact of the potential solution before going off and doing your sprint as fast as you can. Our goal is to provide agile analysis approaches and techniques for your team to ensure the right thing is built, have user stories that clearly identify the minimum viable product, and potentially eliminate unnecessary stories.
The course provides practical guidance on handling complex projects, spontaneous scenarios and decision points that occur on an agile project. Our material covers many variations of agile analysis so that each technique taught can be adapted to different types of projects, different types of agile teams, and even a variety of agile frameworks.
At the end of this course students will be able to:
This course is designed for anyone working on an agile team, but is especially helpful for product owners, business analysts, systems analysts, or any other team member involved with requirements on an agile project. This course may also be appropriate for individuals who manage individuals working on an agile team and need a more in-depth understanding of the process and skills useful for an agile team.
There is a short prerequisite quiz for students to help tailor the learning process.
Each student will receive the documentation according to the contents of the course.
An immersion learning approach, along with role playing, allows students to practice the techniques as they learn. Students will experience what a project that is fully leveraging agile concepts and culture looks and feels like. This allows them to better understand their role on the team and appreciate their team member’s contributions. During the course, we will demonstrate how analysis is used at every step in the process, even if the techniques are not always recognized as analysis in their current environment.
This course includes many of the concepts found in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), as well as Scrum and Kanban. It supports the standards outlined in the IIBA BABOK® Guide V3. This course will also touch upon alternate agile approaches (XP, Iterative, DAD, hybrids such as Scrumban, Scrumfall and other organic approaches) to allow those pursuing agile to consider all the practices and options. Students who have previously take our Essential Skills for Business Analysis will see how to leverage and reuse those skills in an agile environment.
To ensure the knowledge gained during class is transferred to actionable plans, we include an optional comprehensive quiz after class. Students are encouraged to bring projects into class for exercises and to develop a more personalized post-class action plan to take their project to the next step.
This course is included in our Business Analysis Certification Program. By attending this course, students earn credit towards the BA Associate and BA Certified certifications, as well as credit towards the Agile Analysis Badge.
Students will earn 21 credit hours for their attendance.
A certificate of attendance will be issued to students who attend the course for at least 75% of the duration.
This session is highly interactive utilizing the latest Adobe® Connect technology. It enables students the opportunity to collaborate with other students and receive instructor feedback in breakout sessions. Additional details will be forwarded to you 2 weeks prior to class with login details. To optimize you and your classmates experience, we recommend that you use a headset during class.
