We often hear the phrase "business analysts aren't needed in Agile teams because they aren’t mentioned in Scrum." Nothing could be further from the truth! If you enable change by articulating needs and the rationale for the change and assist in designing and describing solutions that deliver value to customers and the business, then this course is for you.
