Agile Business Analyst (AgileBA®) Foundation and Practitioner Training Course | Hull

Agile’s influence on the project management industry continues to rise at pace. Increasing numbers of organisations and project professionals are embracing Agile tools and frameworks as they aim to increase the success of – and return on investment from – projects, product / software development and other change initiatives.

Despite originating in the software development arena, Agile methods and frameworks are becoming increasingly popular in a wide variety of industries and projects as the benefits over more traditional frameworks and methodologies are realised.

As organizations and individuals embrace and transition to Agile ways of working, the roles of key personnel can evolve significantly, requiring fresh guidance, concepts and techniques. Prior to AgileBA, there was little in the way of detailed guidance directly addressing the role, responsibilities and skills of the Agile Business Analyst.

Agile Business Analyst training (Agile BA training) offers useful, practical and comprehensive guidance on the role of the Business Analyst working in an agile way (the Agile Business Analyst).

This five star Agile Business Analyst (AgileBA®) Foundation and Practitioner training course will be delivered at Hull, UK.
