Is what a business analyst (BA) does on an agile project much different from what is done on a waterfall project? During this session we’ll review how the role of a BA on an agile project can vary. BAs impact the development team, and what makes a BA good at their jobs. All analysts bring excellent communication, collaboration, and trust to their work on project teams – but how we communicate and collaborate will differ. In small group discussions, and with the larger group of all attendees, we’ll discuss how BAs impact agile project success.
