Overview:

This three day comprehensive course builds your knowledge and skills in the agile approach to projects. You will learn about the role of the project manager, product owner, and business analyst on agile projects, and how to write user stories, which are the most common method of representing requirements.  You will learn techniques for building and managing a Product Backlog of user stories, and techniques for estimating and prioritizing requirements for releases and iterations.

You will learn the conditions of success for agile methods, how to scale the agile approach for large teams, and how to adapt your current business analysis methods to become more agile.
