Featured Instructor - The BA Guide

Jeremy Aschenbrenner

Hi there! My name is Jeremy Aschenbrenner and I am so glad you have found me! I am a veteran Business Analyst with more than 1000 completed projects. I've done business analysis work for companies in many industries including health care, telecommunications, automotive, trucking, consumer goods, financial services, food and beverage, and more. I created The BA Guide to break down the barriers to becoming a Business Analyst. Throughout our various courses I teach you what you need to know in order to start your Business Analyst career. But I don't just stop there. Once you have successfully started your Business Analyst career, I ensure you are successful by providing training on techniques, tools, and best practices. When I am not behind a computer I love to spend time with family and friends, enjoying some warm weather, and if I'm lucky, with a cold drink in my hand and sand between my toes.

Very practical and easy to follow !

Ilia Pant

The course was very helpful in understanding the agile principles in depth. Our team decided to experiment with few ideas that we learned in this course.

Awesome video content !

by Meghann Rudolph

So far I am gaining a lot of knowledge from the course and appreciate the videos that were created with such helpful content. I can absolutely see myself implementing the frameworks, that are being discussed, into my own life and career. Thanks for creating an easy to follow course!

Very experienced instructors !

Amanda Araiza

The Agile Fundamentals course is worth taking. Very detailed explanations, thank you so much for the knowledge you have impacted on me. Both instructors are very experienced and provided a lot of good insight.

Extremely helpful !

Michael Stayton

This course has been extremely helpful. The instructors break the concepts and content down thoroughly to a point where it really makes sense. I now have a firm understanding of the agile manifesto and principles. As well as more context around what vertical slicing is, how to efficiently write user stories, as well as the differences between scrum, kanban, and scrumban. I highly recommend going through the course as it has truly elevated my understanding of being agile and leveraging the different frameworks.

Who is the target audience

  • Those interested in working within an Agile team (Aspiring Business Analysts, Project Managers, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, Quality Assurance).

  • Current Agile team members that want to deepen their understanding of the Agile processes or learn a new framework (Scrum, Kanban, or Scrumban).

  • Current non-Agile team members whose organization is making, or is considering, the switch to Agile frameworks.
