Business analysis is central to the success of development projects. As more and more software products are developed in an agile environment, it is important that all concerned appreciate where business analysts fit in.
Agile business analysis is about ensuring the right information is available to the development team in the right level of detail, at the right time, so they can build the right product.
This course uses the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) Agile Extension to the Body of Knowledge (BABOK) Guide as a framework for helping attendees understand the precise role of business analysts in agile software development.
At the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
Understand the need for, and principles of, agile development methods.

Recognise the skills required for optimum effectiveness within an agile team.
Be familiar with the analysis techniques used in an agile approach.

Those attending should have a knowledge of information systems development.
