This course has a good balance of theoretical and practical, case study based exercises designed to get you comfortable with the radically different approach. All aspects of Scrum are covered and you will get the chance to discuss the issues with an experienced tutor and with the other delegates.

This course is aimed at you. It will give you a thorough grounding in the Roles, Activities and Work Products of Scrum while demonstrating that the traditional BA skills of effective communication, analytical thinking, good documentation and sheer common sense are vital to the Scrum effort.

Ideally, you should have some Business Analysis experience

As a traditional Business Analyst you are now required to change your world-view because you are moving into an Agile, Scrum environment. You are worried because:

  • There seems to be no BA role in Scrum
  • There is no 'Business Requirements Document'
  • There is no traditional functional spec or use cases
  • It all sounds a bit chaotic

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Contribute to the overall Scrum environment using BA skills
  • Create the Product Backlog from a business scenario
  • Contribute to Product Backlog prioritisation
  • Contribute to Product Backlog estimation
  • Help plan a sprint
  • Take part in / facilitate the Daily Scrum meeting
  • Control and monitor the burn-down charts
  • Take part in / facilitate the Scrum Review meeting
  • Take part in / facilitate the Scrum Retrospective meeting
