Agile & Lean Requirements Training
Agile & Lean Requirements training focuses on the challenge that business analysis lacks a singular approach that works best for every project, team and organization (agile or otherwise). Our agile business analysis training courses focus on a framework of tools, techniques and tips that can be used to improve analysis on agile projects.
Business analysis is about learning, improving organizations and delivering value. It should always be lean – delivering just enough, just in time.
This does not change if you are working on an agile project. What may change is who performs business analysis, when it is performed, how it is performed and what business analysis means in practice. Agile business analysis will vary based on how you implement agile, your relative agile maturity, organizational constraints and many other factors.
This course leverages core concepts from the IIBA® Business Analysis Body of Knowledge 2.0®, useful concepts from the IIBA BABOK Agile Extension draft, lean, scrum, XP and more.
- Agile and lean principles: How principles are central to organizations starting and continuing to improve on the agile continuum.
- Agile roles and framework: Understanding agile roles using the Scrum framework as well as elements form XP and kanban.
- Software delivery approaches demystified: We explore the foundations of sequential and agile software development and discuss potential advantages and disadvantages.
- Agile and the BABOK: Learn about the knowledge areas of the BABOK and the BABOK Agile Extension. Understand how it aligns as well as how it is misinterpreted when applied in an agile world.
- Enterprise analysis and agile: How enterprise analysis works on agile projects. Illustrating how value is defined and when value is reviewed.
- Agile requirements: Learn what requirements really are, what an agile requirement is and how requirements fit into an agile project.
- Business rules and processes on agile projects: Learn about project foundations and explore how business analysis is involved in improvement, regardless of software.
- Business analysis on an agile project: Learn about variations of analysis on agile projects.
- Agile backlogs and estimates: Explore the types of backlogs in agile, their differences and how business analysis is involved. We also dig into types of estimates and how to estimate on an agile project (or any project).
- Business analysis tools and techniques: We cover and practice with business examples to show how to utilize business analysis techniques to increase customer value via collaboration, analysis and understanding.
- Business analysis and continuous improvement: How to build an analysis practice that evolves and improves.
- The business analyst and agile: In this option segment, we explore and discuss why the business analyst title and role is typically ignored in most “current” agile books and documentation. This topic tends to generate the most interest for people with a BA title; however, it should be noted that everyone should find value in this discussion, since it important to understand who is and will be doing analysis on projects.
