Seminar Content & Approach
Students come to this seminar from various backgrounds and skill sets. They all leave with the ability to apply Agile methods to their current and future projects.
This seminar is comprehensive. We start with an introduction of the Agile method and terminology. We then explore the roles and authority that make up an Agile team. We place Agile activities in the larger contexts of the product owner, the project, the business need, and the enterprise.
We then dive into the major BA tasks on an Agile project, and explore the BA role of *liaison*, focusing on team communications and stakeholder management.
The seminar is mapped to the Agile Extension of the IIBA Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK Guide). This means we are teaching up-to-the-minute principles, vocabulary, and methods, mapped to the global standard in business analysis.
Like all Outset Group training, this seminar is hands-on, interactive, fast-paced, and focused on real world performance. This means that students not only learn a highly sought after knowledge base. They also gain experience in applying those principles and methods to their work.
