Business Analysts going Agile
by Melanie Franklin
As part of my continual professional development I attended the Train the Trainer day for the new qualification AgileBA (Agile Business Analyst). You can read the full blog here .
While originally doubting my sanity in attending the day’s training and Foundation exam after travelling back that morning from a week in Saudi Arabia on a client assignment, I was determined to learn as much as I could from the day with other experts.
Glad to be there
There were 15 trainers and consultants attending the event and as I was not having to lead the proceedings I could enjoy interacting with the material and others attending. Definitely a learning point for others considering taking time out for a qualification based course that there are many benefits other than attaining a qualification.
My blog covered the key learning points but in summary:
Benefit: introduction of new models that help both BA and PM. There are also more jobs being posted that specifically ask for AgileBA.
Drawback: not enough on the change implications and delegates would definitely benefit from attending the AgilePM course first.
