Inteq's Agile Business Analysis training course enables analysts to rapidly and intelligently prioritize requirements and optimize resource (time, talent, budget) allocation to get the right requirements "right" - using the right techniques to rapidly deliver the right level of detail and precision, to the right people at the right time.

Inteq’s Agile Business Analysis course applies to the spectrum of business analysis projects from Business Process Reengineering (BPR), digital transformation and I.T. modernization – to identifying, analyzing and specifying business system requirements and orchestrating change management. 

Agile business analysis is essential in today’s increasingly complex, rapidly changing and often chaotic, globally competitive business environment.

  • Projects often span multiple business areas with different, sometimes conflicting, business practices.
  • Getting "buy in" and support from a wide range of sponsors and subject matter experts is critical.
  • Organizations are lean. No one seems to know "the business" - only pieces.
  • Access to knowledgeable subject matter experts is increasingly difficult - often resulting in an endless chain of references to "someone who knows".
  • Business is fast paced. Innovation is essential. Everyone needs a solution “now”!
  • There never seems to be enough time to get it right. However, there is little tolerance for getting it wrong.
  • Delivering increasing levels of customer and business value is essential to competitiveness.
  • Organizations continually evaluate, prioritize and fund projects based on delivering organizational effectiveness and operational efficiency. 

Inteq’s Agile Business Analysis course leverages the best practice skills, methods and techniques gleaned from projects  across the spectrum of industries coherently organized in connection with the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide.

Agile Business Analysis is the perfect follow-on to inteq’s Business Systems Analysis, Business Processes Modeling, Business Process Management courses.

Inteq's business analysis training courses have emerged as the gold standard for professional business analysis training - and are simply the most effective business analysis training courses available in the industry.

Inteq's Agile Business Analysis training course is more than education; its transformation - for the participants, project teams and their organizations. That’s why over 300,000 business and systems analysis professionals worldwide choose Inteq's business analysis training courses.

The courses comprising Inteq's Business Analyst Series are IIBA approved in connection with business analyst certification as part of IIBA’s Certified Business Analyst Professional requirements.
