Agile Business Analysis discusses trends in the business analysis and agile environments, how these two areas align and promote each other, and identifies areas of responsibility and ownership for the business analyst (BA). It triggers readers to review the role of the BA in their environments and shows how to create value in agile environments through the introduction of business analysis skills into agile project processes and activities. Readers will learn ways BAs can provide support to agile projects through modeling techniques; documentation; communication, meetings, and reporting; governance; building user stories, elaborating requirements, and facilitating the estimating process; ensuring effective application of lessons, improvements, and efficiencies; and much more. The book is designed for BAs of all levels, from all types of environments, and for agile practitioners, including Scrum Masters, coaches, project managers, product owners, and technical team members who interact with BAs on their projects.
