Agile Business Analysis – a 3-day Course

So I can build a foundation for agile product discovery, estimating and planning, and value management,
I need to use effective, efficient and creative ways to analyze “just enough” agile requirements.

Agile business analysis helps teams Discover to Deliver™ the right product at the right time. This course is designed for agile team members responsible for doing business analysis and requirements work. The work focuses on value management, not requirements management. You experience a deep-dive into collaborative techniques that engage the product’s stakeholders.

If you are an agile business analyst, to succeed you need to translate your extensive experience with business analysis, requirements, and the business domain into modern concepts, such as product backlogs, value, and user stories, and beyond. We bridge that gap.

We are not so focused on just filling in the story card, rather the story card is a by-product of the discussion. We are doing much more modeling. Everyone agrees this is valuable. We are more focused on understanding the requirements, not trying to fit the story to an expected solution. The 7 Product Dimensions approach is helping to focus the discussionTech Lead, Financial Services Organization
