As more organizations are moving to agile delivery, it is becoming increasingly important for business analysis professionals to understand how to adapt their current skills to support different delivery frameworks. Even when organizations have not fully embraced agile, research shows that many teams are embracing ‘some’ agile practices. Traditional waterfall business analysis skills are still important, but so is professionally developing to understand how to adapt your processes and skills as delivery frameworks evolve.
Project success is dependent on effective business analysis, therefore business analysis professionals must continue to evolve their skillsets to keep up with the needs and expectations of agile teams. Many traditional project teams run into trouble when they try to define all of the requirements up front.
