The BA as an Agile Accelerator - with Ryland Leyton, CBAP
Agile implementations often overlook the Business Analyst (BA) or casts them purely into the Product Owner role, which unintentionally excludes great parts of the BA value. This session sets the BA clearly into the agile space and explains how we enhance the classic roles
- Understand and be able to explain the role & responsibilities the BA should hold in an agile environment
- Be able to state the value proposition and benefits of having a BA in agile practices.
- Overcome typical objections to the BA, documentation, and analysis work “not being needed” in agile frameworks.
