DESCRIPTION:
Although the field of IT Business Analysis offers great career opportunities for those seeking employment, some business analysis skills are essential for any adult in the business world today. In this KnowledgeKnugget™ you will learn how Agile Software Development approaches affect business analysis activities and requirements gathering efforts.

This KnowledgeKnugget™ answers questions like:
1. What is Agile software development?
2. How does it affect your business analysis activities?

ABOUT THE ECOURSE:
The eCourse “Business Analysis Defined” describes how business analysis is currently practiced. The authors provide insight into this fast-growing field by distinguishing strategic, tactical, and operational business analysis. It provides surveys of what Business Analysts really do and what business analysis techniques people use most often when they are the one “wearing the BA hat”. You will learn what “requirements” really are and what different types of requirements exist. Because many requirements define future information technology (IT) solutions, the authors share their experience on how Waterfall, Iterative, Agile, and Experimental (aka “Chaotic”) Software Development methodologies impact the business analysis responsibility.

Upon completion of this course, you can:
• Identify and categorize best practices
• Defend the need for good requirements
• Classify four requirement types
• Identify the critical skills required by business analysts
• Describe the tools used
• Relate the evolving role of today’s business analyst
• Discuss how SDMs like Waterfall, Iterative, and Agile affect business analysis activities
