Agile Requirements Training Options
BA-Squared training is methodology/framework agnostic. We focus on developing agile mindsets that align with the Agile Manifesto and the Agile Principles. Why? Because helping people think differently is what changes behavior and transforms organizations. Agile thinking applies to all aspects of the project life cycle, where most frameworks address only pieces, which is why most teams use a mix of approaches to agile.
We offer classes and workshops in multiple formats depending on client needs. Options include onsite corporate training, virtual training (live) and public classes. As always, BA-Squared can customize content, delivery method, duration and location to meet your needs.

- The WHOLE TEAM! Many clients have seen great success when the entire agile team understands the agile requirements mindset and planning approach.
