New London based BA 

 Hi folks.

I'm a new BA (of 6 months) in the London area.  I'm also new to IT although having worked in my current company for 5 years, often closely with IT I've got excellent domain knowledge and am quickly picking up skills and techniques through lots of reading and practice.  

I've joined IT at an interesting time in my organisation - shortly after joining the team we started a transition to a Lean/Agile approach to software development.  This is exciting for me since, if done right, I can see it addressing some of the major pains I've felt dealing with IT from the business side.  I've been lucky enough to participate in some really good training events including User Stories with Mike Cohn and, later this month, Scrum Master training by Martine Devos.

One of the most interesting changes taking place is a rethink of exactly what the role of the BA is in the Agile world and how we add value to projects.  Expect to see many questions from me over the next few months!

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change. As business analysts, we identify and define the solutions that will maximize the value delivered by an organization to its stakeholders. We look for opportunities for new business models and new ways to work together. ...
