What is AgileBA?

‘Agile Business Analyst (AgileBA)’ is a qualification created by APMG International.

It is designed to demonstrate and explain how business analysts operate and create value within Agile projects and environments.

AgileBA combines the traditional role of a business analyst with the tools, best practices, and environmental factors of Agile projects.

Candidates study how the two elements enhance one another, driving continuous improvement within both projects and the wider business.

What is a business analyst?

A ‘business analyst’ is a versatile professional who analyzes and advises on various aspects of a typical business, including project management, communication, and data analysis.

They will look through documents, processes, business models, systems, technological integration, and more, developing a keen understanding of how everything works while also consulting experts and stakeholders.

This helps them to identify potential areas for improvement.

What does the AgileBA certification path look like?
