Agile Business Analysis®

Don’t get left behind…

The Business Analyst (BA) is a critical role within an agile project team and with more and more organisations adopting agile approaches, BAs performing this crucial role need to have the necessary skills and expertise.

Despite this, there has been little in the way of detailed best practice guidance that directly addresses the role, responsibilities and skills of the Agile Business Analyst.

The Foundation workshop prepares candidates for the APMG Agile Business Analysis Foundation certification.

The Practitioner workshop builds on the 3 day AgileBA Foundation workshop, providing additional depth of understanding, and prepares candidates for the APMG Agile Business Analysis Practitioner certification exam.
