Carol Chew – Leading Business Excellence: Agile Analysis

“The value and solutions delivered in an agile initiative are similar to any other initiative. The difference with an agile approach is the emphasis on delivering value early in a highly collaborative manner, using adaptive planning that has a focus on continuous improvement.” Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge: BABOK Guide, vol. 3.0, International Institute of Business Analysis, Toronto : Ontario, 2015, p. 368.

Learning objectives:

  • What is agile analysis?
  • Why agile analysis?
  • Agile analysis in the SDLC
  • Misconceptions of agile analysis
