AgileBA Foundation


The Foundation workshop is about providing an understanding of the:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the Agile Business Analyst role and responsibilities
  • Context to the role beyond the individual project, in relation to organisational mission and strategy
  • Additional depth, guidance and techniques for the Business Analyst role.


The guidance is based on the DSDM Agile Project Framework, an approach which defines the role of the project-based Business Analyst in relation to business, development and testing roles at all levels. However the guidance goes deeper, with many generic and popular agile techniques also included.

The workshop also includes review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions for the Foundation level certification.
