What should BA retrain in for agile? 
Some companies are not seeing the need for business analysts in agile anymore. Whilst I don't agree the argument is that the product owner can do user stories and the developers can handle requirements discussions.
So, with companies that don't value the BA,v what should a BA retrain in or do in the future? The only valid rule I can think of is scrum master but that's more project management. The product owner belongs the the business side, not IT.

Re: What should BA retrain in for agile? 

Hi Qwertyjjj,

For the last 8 years I've worked with my team of BAs (I'm a BA Manager) in Agile methodologies and not had a problem. The question of whether a BA is still needed in Agile is a bit of a dud one for me as I have never had a problem and if anything, my teams work requirements has gone up, not down. 

If you find that your company no longer feels they need a BA, then I think it is more a company thing than a global wide instance. I would say just change company. There are plenty that still need BAs.

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
