The Agile Business Analyst (Virtual - Online)

There are many approaches to Agile but very few address how the Business Analyst fits into the approach or how business analysis is done.  It seems to magically happen by everyone on the team and unfortunately, many teams are struggling and wondering why they don’t have a business analyst.  There is more to it than a user story right?

Writing Better User Stories (Virtual - Online)

Writing user stories is harder than you think.  Trying to capture the functionality the user wants is not always that simple.  User stories are one of the most applicable techniques introduced by Agile and many organizations have been using them in place of their stakeholder requirements in Waterfall environments because of their ease of use and relatability to their users.  Getting them right takes practice.  Many user stories are too big and cannot be worked on.  Some are too small adding no real value.  This course helps you write effective user stories by identifying the attributes and guidelines for writing better user stories.

Writing Better Requirements

The majority of project failures blame the requirements process so it’s no wonder that writing good requirements is complicated and harder than what most people think.  If it were that simple, wouldn’t we have mastered it decades ago?  There are a lot of tools, methodologies and even templates that seem to promise great requirements.  The real truth is that they only assist with storage and communication and the actual writing relies on you.  This class will explore how you can create well-formed, high-quality requirements that will ensure all stakeholders clearly understand what the solution is intended to do.  Whether you are new to business analysis or have been doing it a while you are sure to learn some new techniques and approaches to writing great requirements.
