Business analysis in an agile world

Business analysis in an agile world

Agile software development processes have been mainstream for nearly a decade, yet there is still a lot of confusion on how traditional roles operate within this paradigm. In this talk Martin will share his experiences where he helped business analysts operate effectively within environments that strive for agility. The session will address the role of the analyst as well as techniques that would help them along their journey.

This session aims to go beyond the stigmas and controversies usually associated with the role of Business Analysts in agile environments.
