Today, more organisations are adopting Agile development and the trend is expected to continue. Agile development streamlines process overhead and improves predictability through better risk management.

Some popular Agile flavours today include Scrum and XP. Although these flavours describe in details the steps in Agile development, they do not elaborate on how to manage the requirements. This Business Analysis for Agile Practitioners course has been designed to introduce participants to the entire Agile development process, with a focus on requirements.

Participants will learn how to write and validate user stories. They will also be engaged in hands-on sessions to help facilitate and enhance the learning process.
