Product Description

Everything the BA needs to know to support the project manager on an iterative-incremental project, with an emphasis on risk management over the course of the life cycle.  As you step through the case study, you’ll learn what activities to perform and what artifacts to produce at each iteration of each phase in order to effectively manage risk and the requirements as the project progresses. The course focuses on risk and requirements-management techniques useful on any agile, iterative lifecycle that incorporates use cases. Specific methodologies and frameworks are also discussed, including MSF, RUP, Scrum and Extreme Programming as well as traditional, waterfall approaches.
