Why study this course

This Combined course is also available as two separate courses: AgileBA Foundation and AgileBA Practitioner.

Agile frameworks aim to deliver workable business solutions, in a fraction of the time that other traditional approaches can deliver. Whether you are from a small or large sized business, private or public sector, you can apply an Agile framework to your organisation. Today’s fast paced and competitive business environment is increasing pressure on organisations to deliver services and working solutions in shorter and more aggressive timeframe, without compromising on quality and profit. To meet the modern-day challenge of doing more with less, businesses need to adopt a more flexible and dynamic approach to delivering projects; the Agile DSDM (Dynamic System Development Method) way.

This course, accredited by APMG, provides the world’s first independent certification in Agile Business Analysis. It provides participants with an understanding of how AgileBA processes can guide the planning, analysis, elicitation, and control of successful Agile projects.

Our Agile Business Analysis Practitioner course is uniquely designed to provide the in-depth knowledge and understanding necessary to practice and apply the Agile Business Analysis methodology. Participants are required to exhibit competency acquired from the Agile Business Analysis Foundation qualification and show how they can apply Agile Business Analysis to address the needs of a project, the sponsoring organisation and needs of the various stakeholders, to a set of specific project scenarios. This course, accredited by APMG-International, provides the world’s first independent certification in Agile Business Analysis. This Practitioner course follows on from the Foundation course and provides an opportunity to gain certification in Agile Business Analysis at Practitioner level.
