The BA Role in Supporting the Project Manager - Iterative Risk and Requirements Management for the BA (BABOK 3) Training

Course#: BA003

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
* Perform the Business Analyst role in supporting the PM on an iterative project
* Understand the Project Manager role on an iterative project
* Perform the BA role in Risk Management for iterative projects
* Manage the requirements over the course of an iterative project
* Be able to produce key deliverables for an iteratively managed project
* Collaborate effectively with other members of the iterative team


Everything the BA needs to know to support the project manager on an iterative-incremental project, with an emphasis on risk management over the course of the life cycle.  As you step through the case study, you’ll learn what activities to perform and what artifacts to produce at each iteration of each phase in order to effectively manage risk and the requirements as the project progresses. The course focuses on risk and requirements-management techniques useful on any agile, iterative lifecycle that incorporates use cases. Specific methodologies and frameworks are also discussed, including MSF, RUP, Scrum and Extreme Programming as well as traditional, waterfall approaches.


In an effort to shorten time-to-market and to uncover bugs early, IT organizations are increasingly using a style of project management called iterative-incremental development.  The iterative strategy is to develop software in small cycles of analysis, design and coding – rather than doing all the up-front work before coding begins.  To work effectively in this environment, Business Analysts and the Project Managers need to be familiar with the fundamentals of this approach and their roles in managing risk and the requirements, the production of key deliverables, and estimating resources over the course of an iterative project.  This course provides the trainee with guidance and hands-on experience in these areas.

What makes this course stand out from the competition?

1. Experience: Our course is written and delivered by professionals with extensive practical experience in iterative development from a business analysis perspective.
2. Scenario-based training: This is not just another “theory” course in project management.  Trainees learn how to perform the BA role and support the Project Manager on an iterative project by managing risk and requirements on  an integrated case study throughout the life cycle and experiencing the roles in real time.
