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 guidance is based on the DSDM® (Dynamic System Development Method) Agile Project Framework, an approach which defines the role of the project-based Business Analyst in relation to business, development and testing roles at all levels. However, the guidance goes deeper, with many generic and popular agile techniques also included.

The Foundation course prepares candidates for the Agile Business Analysis (AgileBA®) Foundation certification.

The Practitioner course builds on the AgileBA® Foundation Course, providing additional depth of understanding, and prepares candidates for the AgileBA Practitioner Certification Examination.

About this course

Foundation Course Objectives

The Foundation course includes review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions to prepare participants for the Foundation level certification.

Practitioner Course Objectives

The Practitioner course prepares participants to undertake and pass the AgileBA Practitioner Examination.  The Practitioner level qualification aims to measure whether the candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the AgileBA guidance to apply and tailor it to a given scenario situation.

The scenario is designed to allow the candidate to demonstrate they possess the competence to begin working as an AgileBA.

The course includes review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions for the Practitioner level certification.

Please note that the Practitioner course is an examination preparation course and focuses on the application of AgileBA to prepare candidates for the Practitioner examination.

What is the difference between a Weekend package course and a Weekday package course?

  • Weekend courses require additional pre-reading and homework exercises.
  • The weekend Foundation days generally run from 8am-6pm with the Practitioner day running from 9am-5pm.
  • The Foundation exam is included as normal completed on Sunday afternoon at the conclusion of the 2-day Foundation course.
  • The Practitioner exam is included as normal, completed on Saturday afternoon at the conclusion of the 1-day Practitioner course.
