An Agile Business Analyst (Agile BA) understands the Agile methodology and can help a business use Agile principles.
They work with stakeholders to help them understand the benefits of Agile and how it can help their business.
An Agile BA helps the team to get a better grasp of the project and where it fits within the organizational strategy. This can be done by facilitating a number of discussions such as:What business processes should be created, eliminated, or revised?
What stakeholders are involved in the project?
What information should be tracked?
What policies and rules should be followed that affect business behavior and decisions
In the class* students are challenged to explore the Agile and Scrum principles so they can better understand what to do when applying Scrum to support their teams and organizations.
The course, developed by Scrum.org, uses a combination of instructor-led and activity-based learning where students work together in teams. Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) bring their own Scrum Master experiences and stories to the class and use their skills as professional trainers to deliver the material using their own unique delivery style. The result is an engaging, enjoyable learning experience where students gain a deep understanding of Scrum theory and principles, the Scrum Master accountabilities and why each element of the Scrum framework is important.
Students leave this course with an appreciation for Professional Scrum, the agile mindset and how to deal with common myths and impediments to agility. They gain the knowledge and understanding about how to choose and apply the appropriate practices and techniques that will be most beneficial for their Scrum Teams.
