There are a lot of statements that claim that Business Analysts are not needed in Agile or that there is no planning or documentation. However, this is absolutely not the case! Andrew Thorpe and Ryan McKergow will explain how all the essential Business Analysts competencies are still applicable and important within Agile, what are the values and behaviours that an Agile Business Analyst will need to embody, and what the day in the life of an Agile Business Analyst looks like.

    Agile Manifesto
    We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping
    others do it. Through this we have come to value:
    Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    Working software over comprehensive documentation
    Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
    Responding to change over following a plan
    That is, while there is value in the items on the right,
    we value the items on the left more.
