It also offers a syllabus, diagram pack, glossary, further reading and links document, white papers, and links to download essential digital copies of the framework publications. It also contains some of the most frequently asked questions about the AgileBA qualification.
Module 1: The Role of the Business Analyst Learning Objectives
In module one, we take a look at the role of the business analyst and how an AgileBA works in a very different way. We explore the context of an AgileBA’s role in relation to business needs and address some of the best practice techniques that can help an AgileBA support their organization in the formulation of its strategies.
Module 2: Agile Fundamental Concepts: DSDM Principles & Roles Learning Objectives
In module two, we consider the DSDM philosophy, along with the Agile approach to project variables. We address the DSDM process and how it can be scaled and configured. We then present the 8 DSDM principles along with the team model before considering the DSDM roles and how they work together.
Module 3: Agile Fundamental Concepts: DSDM Management Products Learning Objectives
In this module, we explore the management products from each DSDM phase and the purpose that each of them serves. We also consider the role of the AgileBA within an Agile project.
Module 4: The Agile Business Case Learning Objectives
In module four, we consider the role of the Agile business case, why you might need one, its connection to business strategy, and the typical contents. We discuss the Agile roles and responsibilities with regards to the business case and the Agile practices that can be leveraged in order to create one.
Module 5: Stakeholders in the Agile Project Learning Objectives
In module five, we look at how to work with stakeholders in an Agile project. We start off by understanding what a stakeholder is and how to engage them through various techniques and practices. We explore what good communication looks like and how important it can be to engage stakeholders at the right time with the right level of detail. We also examine the impact this can have on the project outcomes.
Module 6: Agile Practices: Facilitated Workshops Learning Objectives
Utilizing facilitated workshops is a proven Agile practice that ensures robust collaboration, rich communication, and the achievement of results with speed and buy-in. In this module, we’ll explore some of the more common types of facilitated workshops and how the AgileBA is involved in their use throughout a DSDM project.
Module 7: Agile Practices Modeling Learning Objectives
In module seven, we continue our journey exploring key Agile practices. We start off by considering modeling and prototyping. You’ll understand the target audience for these practices and why they are so useful. We’ll discuss the different types of modeling and their purposes before looking at the link this practice has with the DSDM principles.
Module 8: Prioritization Learning Objectives
Module 8 looks at prioritization and the key role it plays within Agile projects. We’ll discuss different prioritization tools like MoSCoW and the Kano model, and the role that effective prioritization has in the success of a project.
Module 9: Agile Practices: Timeboxes & Iterative Development Learning Objectives
This module is concerned with timeboxes, what these are and what they are used for within a project. We then move on to explore iterative development and the function it has in solution development and testing. We’ll conclude by exploring how AgileBAs are involved with both elements in an Agile project.
Module 10: Requirements Introduction Learning Objectives
Modules 10 and 11 introduce you to requirements, their planning, and how to estimate them. Module 10 starts off by explaining several definitions and then moves on to dissect how requirements activities develop throughout the DSDM lifecycle. You’ll be introduced to user stories during the module, as well as the INVEST model, and you’ll also get to grips with the purpose of the PRL.
