Frequently Asked Questions

Why Agile Academy?

Agile Academy’s live training program is different from typical online courses or 2-day certification workshops. Our 16 week program will engage you in live sessions with Agile industry experts, interactive assignments, and real-life simulations so you will feel confident that you have the knowledge and skills needed to be an Agile Business Analyst.

What are the daily responsibilities of an Agile Business Analyst?

The daily responsibilities of an Agile Business Analyst may vary depending on the project, but typically the daily responsibilities may include: gathering and analyzing business requirements, performing root cause analyses, creating use cases and user stories, collaborating with stakeholders and team members to define scope and objectives, developing process flow diagrams, and participating in sprint planning, review and retrospective meetings. They may also be responsible for ensuring that the product meets customer needs and expectations, and for providing regular updates to stakeholders and customers.

How many hours a week should I plan on committing to in order to be successful in this learning track?

You should expect to commit around 10-15 hours a week between live classes, online content, and fieldwork.

Do I need experience in tech or need to know how to code to be a successful Agile Business Analyst?

No, because Agile Business Analysts work very closely with Product Owners to elevate some of their responsibilities, you do not need to code or have extensive technical knowledge. However, prior experience working in customer-centric settings, strong communication, and people skills will help you succeed as a business Analyst along with the training from Agile Academy.

What time are the live classes?

Our classes are generally on weekday evenings in the CST time zone to accommodate individuals in all time zones across the United States.

What do I need to complete the live sessions?

You will need a laptop or desktop, Zoom, and reliable internet. Handheld devices such as phones or tablets are not suitable for the interactive nature of live sessions.
