Seminar Description

Topics: Project Management/Business Analysis

Sub-Topics: Agile, Requirements Management, Stakeholder Engagement

Business analysis is critical to any agile project, no matter the role names assigned to the team. Business analysis is most frequently part of the product owner role or a separate role that collaborates with the product owner. Either way, product ownership is a team sport. It is also a crucial and complex activity; easy in principle hard in practice. Your role is an important part of any product development approach, irrespective of the approach being taken.  As a product owner, you require clarity of vision, alignment with organizational strategy, understanding of the development process and the ability to communicate with a wide variety of stakeholders across all levels, both inside and outside the organization. This 3-day course will show you how to combine your existing skills with agile tools and techniques. The content focuses on roles in the value management team, and how they collaborate to identify the most important aspects and features of a product. You will provide guidance for technical team members who build the working product. The content covers how to bound your product and understand the business value it provides, identify the key features of the product and organize those features by value, and create a product roadmap. The course also teaches how to write themes, epics and user stories and how to groom and elaborate in order to be ready for sprint planning. The 3rd day of this curriculum will show you how to combine your existing analysis skills with agile tools and techniques. Students will be better equipped to deliver value acting as or to product owners, manage all of the stakeholder wish lists and ensure your project team knows what they’re doing.
