International certification with IIBA

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! While the title of a business analyst does not exist in Scrum, neither do a lot of other titles, e.g. tester, user experience analyst, etc. These titles exist in every organisation we work in.

This course covers the practice of business analysis, with an agile mindset. We will cover common agile business analysis practices, as well as specific techniques you can use at any level of analysis.

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. Attending the class prepares you to take the IIBA®-AAC certification exam.
