Take this course instead of the Iterative course WA2241 if you are working on RUP projects.
Everything the BA, backed up by the IT Project Manager, needs to know to work within a project managed with RUP (Rational Unified Process) iterative development and use-case technology, with comparisons to other approaches to project management. (The non-vendor-specific form of the methodology, UP (Unified Process) is used in the course.) As a BA working on an iterative IT project, you'll learn what activities to perform and what artifacts to produce at each iteration of each phase of a project.
Working in small groups, trainees step through a case study learning when and how to perform BA activities, create deliverables and assist the Project Manager at various phases of the RUP life cycle.
Why Attend This Course?
In an effort to shorten time-to-market and to uncover bugs early, IT organizations are increasingly using a style of project management called iterative development. The iterative strategy is to develop software in small cycles of analysis, design and coding – rather than doing all the up-front work before coding begins. To work effectively in this environment, Business Analysts and the Project Managers need to be familiar with the fundamentals of this approach and their roles in producing key deliverables, managing risk and estimating resources for an iterative project.
What Makes this Course Stand Apart?
Experience: Our course is written and delivered by professionals with extensive practical experience in iterative development from a business analysis perspective.
Scenario-based training: This is not just another “theory” course in project management. Trainees learn how to perform the BA role and support the Project Manager on an iterative project by developing an integrated case study throughout the iterative life cycle and experiencing the roles in real time.
