NICF- Business Analysis for Agile Practitioners

Overview

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.

Through this course, participants will also be equipped with knowledge and skills to effectively perform business analysis in Agile projects. 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.

This course is not recommended for those who have already attended NICF - Certified ScrumMaster course or Certified Scrum Product Owner course.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn:

  • 13 Professional Development hours (PD Hours) for the initial CBAP® application and Continuing Development Units (CDUs) for re-certification under IIBA®
  • 10 Professional Development Units (PDUs) (PM: 10) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential.

Note that for the purpose of PDU reporting by those with PMP® credentials, the PMI REP Provider Number of ISS is “2339”.
