Brief Description: Workshop to introduce business analysts to their role within an agile software development project.
The business analyst role seems conspicuously missing from most agile methods. There are product owners and on site customers, but no business analysts. Do agile methods make business analyst an obsolete role like a locomotive fireman? Certainly not! A rose is still a rose by any other name and business analysts play an important role in agile software development. However, the iterative, incremental and opportunistic nature of the agile methods changes the business analyst role to a more exciting and fulfilling one. This one day seminar introduces the business analysts to techniques and practices necessary work with agile methods.
