Description

As more and more organisations take on Agile Methodologies, a whole practice of Traditional Business Analysts find themselves questioning their place in this new world. This talk explores how important and relevant business analysis is within agile methods. The principles of the agile movement strive to match business needs with development realities and reduce waste as much as possible: Detailing requirements is something teams do even in an agile world but when and how makes the difference from a traditional requirement definition and management (RDM) process. One of the challenges of agile projects is ensuring that the requirements remain agile. While requirements are not necessarily neglected on agile projects, this may erroneously take a waterfall approach to requirements. This session outlines reasons why RDM is critical to success in agile development and discusses eight habits that agile teams should adopt for highly effective requirements definition and management.
