Why Agile Business Analysis
The Agile way of working is becoming ever more popular in modern business. It’s a smart way to work, and so it makes sense for you, the business analyst, to get to grips with how you can contribute to the success of Agile development projects.
This course will help you do just that. Based on a true-to-life case study, you’ll use your existing business analysis knowledge and techniques and practise applying the Agile approach within a business analysis scenario. You’ll come away with a real understanding of how business analysis is applied within the context of the Agile philosophy.
You’ll not only explore the philosophy behind Agile, but the methods and techniques used within business and the principles that guide this way of working. You’ll also consider holistic and lean thinking, and how they can benefit your business.
