About the Course
For business analysts who want to make a smoother transition to agile
The perception of how important business analysis is for agile software development is slowly changing.
Although there is much discussion and a greater awareness as to how relevant BA skills are to the product owner role, in many agile organizations, we still find that business analysis skills and their importance to project success is not well understood.
Today, we find very few courses available to help business analysts make the transition to an agile development environment, where they can apply their expertise and experiences to make a huge impact on the quality of the products being developed.
This course has been designed for professionals who are familiar with the business analysis discipline, and have an interest in making the transition into an agile software development environment.

Please note: There is overlap of course content between this coutrse and my other course on Front Row Agile: "The Agile Product Owner." If you are familiar with the BABOK and the iiBA-Business Analyst disciplines or you are interested in BA Certifications, I would encourage you to take the "Business Analyst Series: Making the Transition" course.
