BAs and PMs Are Not Needed on Agile Projects — Or Are They?

Modern Analyst Webinar

When & Where

Thursday, September 6, 2018 @ 10:00
(PST Pacific Standard Time GMT-8:00)



We often hear comments like “There is no BA role on Agile projects, but since they interface with business stakeholders, they can fulfill the product owners (PO) role. Or “We don’t need requirements or project management on Agile projects.” Or BAs facilitate, so they should be the scrum masters.” Or a large part of the BA’s role is to document requirements and that’s not needed in Agile. There are so many myths swirling around related to roles on Agile projects that’s it’s difficult to tell fact from fiction.

This presentation sorts through these myths and explains
• Why grains of truth about Agile projects become myths
• Why when both business analysis is needed on Agile projects
• The difference between the roles of BA and PM and the work of business analysis and project management
• The difference between a BA and a PO
• The BA role on large Agile projects

Attendees will be able to discuss:
• Myths relating to the Agile Manifesto, leadership styles, requirements, and testing on Agile projects
• Where we fit in on Agile projects
• How we can provide value as organizations adopt Agile

Agile Business Analysis

Intense business environments of today are driven by uncertainty and the high speed of change. Two practices that help organizations meet those challenges are business analysis and Agile. In fact, business analysis has become a core competency for any organization that appreciates the skills needed to align business and customer needs and expectations. In addition, most organizations have gone far beyond asking whether they are going to incorporate Agile into their methods for project delivery; rather, they are well into their exploration of how to make Agile work for them.

Agile business analysis is the resulting sweet spot for today’s most marketable project professional. This presentation explores how business analysis is used in Agile environments and the value proposition that the Agile BA offers to organizations competing in today’s hyper dynamic business environment.

This presentation will explore
• The business analysis core competencies organizations need most
• Where business analysis work is needed on agile projects
• How business analysis in agile organizations differs from BA work in traditional environments
Attendees will be able to discuss:
• How business analysis is used in Agile organizations
• Where BAs fit in on Agile projects
• How BAs can provide value as organizations adopt Agile
