Agile Business Analysis Course – Extension


4-Hour Add-on Module to the Agile Business Analysis and Effective User Stories Courses


This is a single four-hour session held as an add-on the day following either the Agile Business Analysis or Effective User Stories Courses.

In this add-on module, we spend an additional four hours teaching and practicing Agile Business Analysis and User Story capabilities to support product backlog management. Participants will learn techniques to ensure User Stories are ready for planning meetings (by creating and using their Definition of Ready). They will review and refine examples and work from the Agile Business Analysis case exercises. They will learn criteria for splitting stories and refining the backlog. And we will discuss and run exercises on MoSCoW prioritization.

This add-on continues with the approach of experiential online learning — with demonstrations and hands-on group exercises that have been optimized for online with various collaboration tools and using IAG’s Collaborative Online Learning Model which emphasizes engagement and experiential learning with lots of video, group discussion, and exercises to make your time with us fun and productive.

We use Microsoft Teams Meeting and Mural for our visual modeling demonstrations and group exercises. Participants also have access to the Teams site and Mural workplace for 60 days to review and download the many handouts, templates and examples from the class.

Participants receive a participant guide as well as access to our online class workspace for templates, handouts, samples and additional reference material.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is intended for business analysts, project leaders, product owners or agile team members performing business analysis tasks. This is not an introduction to agile, lean or scrum but provides in depth methods and techniques for agile business activities within a lean or agile project/environment.

This is a add-on module specific to the IAG Agile Business Analysis Workshop and builds on learnings, demos and exercises from that class. Consequently, the IAG Agile Business Analysis Workshop is a mandatory pre-requisite.

For further coverage on related Business Analysis practices we suggest:

  •  Writing Use Cases
  •  Effective User Stories
  •  Data Modeling for Business Analysts
  • Process Modeling using BPMN
  • and others listed in our Business Analysis Curriculum

For those interested in becoming a certified AgileBA, we recommend taking AgileBA Foundation Certification Preparation and subsequently the AgileBA Practitioner Certification.
