What is the Training Like?
This Agile Business Analyst IRL course is a workshop-style practical training. Modules or topics generally start with a trainer running a presentation interactively, followed by discussions and case-study-based exercises.

In most exercises you will break out into smaller groups of 3-4 people, creating the opportunity to exchange ideas with other keen learners.

The course runs in a small group so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions. For questions that are not directly related to the course topics, the trainer(s) may schedule a time during one of the breaks to answer them, to ensure your questions are answered while keeping the course on track.

Public courses are run remotely while in-house training can be run remotely or in-person. Regardless of the delivery mode, the course is always practical, hands-on, interactive and delivered live by a senior instructor with 15 – 25+ years’ experience with the skills to make the intensive short course interesting and enjoyable.
