Three-day GDS Academy course on the role of a business analyst within a digital team, for experienced business analysts.
This GDS Academy course focuses on the business analyst role within a digital service. It does not aim to cover all business analysis techniques (there is an assumed level of knowledge here).
Course aims and objectives
The learning objective is to help business analysts understand their role on digital projects by exploring the role and by showing and using some of the techniques that are typically being used.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- describe the role of the business analyst on a digital team
- explain how the business analyst works with other members of a multidisciplinary team and what the business analyst brings to the team
- develop user stories and acceptance criteria
- The role of the business analyst

- How a business analyst impacts each phase

- Behaviour driven development and continuous integration
This course is appropriate for existing business analysts who are about to start work on, or have recently joined, digital teams. A minimum of 6 months’ business analysis experience is required.
The course is focused on business analysts understanding their role on digital projects. It does not cover traditional business analysis methods or techniques.
