Description

Develop the skills needed to become a proficient Agile Business Analyst. Introducing an agile approach has a significant impact on the role of the Business Analyst, on their existing skills and their way of working. Whilst traditional skills are still valuable, new skills and ways of working need to be adopted to harness the benefits of a new way of working and to appreciate the different relationships with co-workers and stakeholders. This training provides the useful, practical and comprehensive guidance on the role of the Business Analyst working in an agile way.

Learning Goals
  • Knowledge and understanding Agile Business Analysis techniques
  • How to move from traditional to more agile ways of working
  • Learn tools needed to adopt an agile approach and when to use them
  • Determine problems and identify business needs
  • Identify and recommend viable solutions for meeting business needs
  • Elicit, document and manage stakeholder requirements in order to meet operations and project objectives
  • Facilitate the successful implementation of the product, service, or end result of the program or project
Topics
  • The Role of the Business Analyst, in an Agile World
  • Agile Fundamentals and the Agile BA
  • The Agile Business Case
  • Stakeholders in the Agile Project
  • Requirements and User Stories
  • Prioritisation, Workshops and Modelling
  • Time boxing and Iterative Development
  • Requirements Planning and Estimating
  • The Requirements Lifecycle in an Agile Project
Description

The existential threats of quick world evolution deem it necessary to continue reinventing ourselves and find new skills to survive new challenges. Pursuing a Requirements engineering skill places you not only on the path to becoming a skilled and adept Product Manager/ Business Analyst but also gives you access to quick employment.

Requirements development begins with techniques for defining the project’s business requirements. It also addresses how to find appropriate customer representatives, elicit requirements from them, document user requirements, business rules, functional requirements, data requirements and non-functional requirements. It describes numerous visual models that represent the requirements from various perspectives to supplement natural-language text and the use of prototypes to reduce risk.

Learning Goals
  • Build a customer-centric product backlog
  • Establish requirements needed for the product backlog
  • Develop elicitation techniques for the product backlog
  • Practical understanding of unified modelling language diagrams
  • Data modelling ERD and Class diagram.
  • Ability to prioritize, validate, and reuse requirements.
Topics
  • Introduction to Requirements Engineering
  • Requirements Elicitation
  • Stakeholder Identification
  • Hierarchy of Requirements
  • Functional Requirements
  • Non Functional Requirements
  • Use of Models in Requirements Engineering
  • Requirements Documentation
  • Requirements Analysis
  • Requirements Validation
  • Requirements Control and Management
Description

This course seeks to explain the rudiments of data and information. It generally illustrates how issues of the real world can be represented in a database using the conceptual, logical or physical model with its own rules and principles. It then invokes the introduction of Structured Query Language (SQL) and eventually the organization of data items into database by the use of Database Management Systems (DBMS).

Learning Goals
  • Explain the concept of relational databases
  • Model and Design a database
  • Build a database and tables by using SQL
  • Perform basic CRUD operations using DML statements
  • Query data with SELECT statements
  • Use built-in MySQL functions
  • Export and import database data
Topics
  • Introduction to Database Concepts
  • Modeling and E-R Diagram
  • Normalization
  • Introduction to SQL
  • DDL and DML Statements
  • Working with Queries (DQL)
  • Aggregate Functions
  • Joins and Set Operations
  • Working with Constraints
  • Implementing Views
  • Data Control language (DCL)

Description

During this course, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the Agile Release Train (ART), how it delivers value, and what they can do to effectively perform their role. They will also learn how to apply lean thinking to write Epics, break them down into Features and Stories, plan and execute Iterations, and plan Program Increments. Finally, attendees learn about the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate as Product Owners and Product Managers, and what it takes to relentlessly improve the ART.

Learning Goals
  • Apply SAFe in the Lean enterprise
  • Connect SAFe Lean-Agile principles and values to the PO/PM roles
  • Collaborate with Lean Portfolio Management
  • Explore continuous value with Program Increment Planning
  • Execute the Program Increment and deliver continuous value
  • Articulate the Product Owner and Product Manager roles
  • Create a role action plan
