Agile for Business Analysts - How a Business Analyst Survives in an Agile Business World
The agile philosophy in software development and in management is one of flexibility and responsiveness, increased communication and just in time decision making, and the removal of barriers of bureaucracy between the business problem and the solution. The agile approach appears to be in direct opposition to intermediaries and interpreters. Extended analytical processes are replaced by short delivery cycles. Business analysts, acting as intermediaries between those with the problem and those with the solution, providing analysis of the business processes and defining requirements that delineate the solution, may find their role evaporating in the agile sunlight.
Is the role of business analyst being marginalized by agile development? What does the business analyst do in the new agile environment? This course answers these questions by defining the variety of roles and options a business analyst has in agile development approaches.
