iSQI® Certified Agile Business Analysis (CABA) Dusseldorf

iSQI® CABA (Certified Agile Business Analysis)




The CABA course presents practices and tools for agile BAs working in any of the emergent fields of agility.

 Agile approaches and methods are growing in popularity with project teams. But where does the business analyst fit in? The Certified Agile Business Analysis (CABA) course presents practices and tools for BAs working in or moving to Agile projects. While the BA will find it is easy to migrate their core analysis skills of critical analysis, change management and articulation to Agile projects, adopting to the new work and delivery methods Agile approaches advocate will feel alien.
