A Day in the Life of an Agile Analyst
At the heart of every successful technology project are solid requirements solving the problem. Creating these requirements and supporting business, while guiding the development team, can be challenging. And when there is a problem with a build or a due date missed, it is not uncommon to hear the requirements were the cause. Although the benefits of using Agile are indisputable, there is a lot of confusion on the value the Business Analysts adds and where we fit within the Scrum team. Add the fact that business analysis is run differently at every organization and often enterprise technology decisions are performed without consulting the BA, it is no wonder being a BA can be challenging and frustrating.
Join us for an open Agile discussion focused on the value and contributions the analyst provides as an intricate member of the Agile development team. We will analyze requirement gathering efforts, discuss BABOK tools and techniques, and evaluate a best practice approach for growing the backlog.
