Description:
Agile approaches and methods are growing in popularity with project teams. But where does the business analyst fit in? The Certified Agile Business Analysis (CABA) course presents practices and tools for BAs working in or moving to Agile projects. While the BA will find it is easy to migrate their core analysis skills of critical analysis, change management and articulation to Agile projects, adopting to the new work and delivery methods Agile approaches advocate will feel alien. The course is directly mapped to the activities, tasks and skills defined in the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide published by the IIBA® (July 2013) and developed in partnership with the Agile Alliance. The Agile Alliance says, “The Agile Extension helps business analysts deliver business knowledge to Agile developers quickly and effectively.”
