In this course, students will gain an understanding about agile business analysis. Students will learn how business analysis on an agile project is ‘the same’ and ‘different’ than business analysis performed on waterfall projects. Students will understand how the business analysis role changes on an agile team. A number of business analysis techniques suited for supporting agile teams will be introduced as will the various standards available to the community to help teams and organizations transition. Since few organizations are pure agile, students will also learn about delivery approaches that use a combination of practices from waterfall and agile and will also be introduced to the important concept of business analysis tailoring – the key skill used to adapt business analysis skills to all environments – regardless of the delivery life cycle selected.
