Learn how agile impacts the business analyst (BA) role and the requirements discovery process.
- Our customers' needs and desires are changing every day, how do we keep up with this and do requirements? The key to our success is to discover what's valuable to our customers amidst this change, and this means analysis must happen. Agile business analysts provide a great service to agile teams and their role with requirements and as a partner to the product owner role. In today's business and technology environment, where change, ambiguity, and complexity are the norm, product and software requirements analysis work is critical to success.
Hi, I'm Angela Wick and welcome to this course which focuses on agile requirements, agile analysis and the agile BA role. This course provides an overview of the mindset and techniques that are useful for working on an agile team with a role in requirements. These techniques will encourage both the business and technical teams to come together as one to deliver value that delights customers.
Agile requirements differ greatly from traditional requirements, yet use many of the same skills that BAs are trained in. Your key skills and facilitation, analysis, and asking great questions will continue to be critical on an agile team. Concepts like perfecting documents take a backseat to lightweight documentation and models, all for the purpose of inspiring better conversations, and document reviews take a backseat to highly collaborative group dynamics and conversation.
