Using flexible approaches, gives huge opportunities for the successful development of IT products. But development teams,that are moving from classical approaches to Agile, often have difficulty with a clear distribution of the roles and responsibilities between team members. This is especially true for such an important role in product development as a Business Analyst, since flexible teams have a Product Owner, and the role of Business Analytics in Agile is not described at all.
So what is this role in the Agile team?
What is the difference and distinction between Business Analytics and Product Owner?
What techniques and methods should be used by modern Business Analytics working in Agile projects?
How to plan a business analysis process in a rapidly changing Agile environment?
To answer these and many other questions, we run the author's practical mini-course on business analysis in Agile.
The entire course will be divided into 5 classes of 2.5 hours, where each lesson will contain a symbiosis of theory and practice in this ratio: 30% of theory, 70% of practice. Together with the participants of the course, we will analyze and test in detail only the best proven techniques and methods that are must have for any business analyst in 2019. In just 5 sessions participants will go through the full path of creating a product in an Agile environment: from the formation of the right product / module idea to its development, implementation and further processing in production. What is enough for the effective performance of the duties of Business Analytics in the Agile project.
At the end of the course participants will know:
- features and responsibilities of the role of business analyst in the Agile project;
- what are the stages of the software in the process of its creation in the modern realities of Agile development;
- what activities, tools and techniques of business analysis are used at each stage of Agile development;
- how and when to practice special technique and how it depends on the conditions of your project;
- how to build an effective business analysis process in an Agile team "from scratch".
All of the above will be consolidated by working on a real product with the team, which will give practical skills in applying the material obtained and allow it to be used in any projects.
