Event description

Description

Ever wondered about the place of the Business Analyst in an Agile Environment? Is there such a thing as an 'agile business analyst'? And how can we apply Agile principles to our work as business analysts?

The Cambridge Business Analysis Community is delighted to welcome guest speaker Lynda Girvan for a session on Agile Business Analysis – Making projects work.

The ability to analyse business needs is an essential skill if we are to ensure that organisations focus their resources and investment funds on solving the root causes of problems.

Analysis skills are so important that we use them every day. Why is it, then, that projects often overlook analysis or consider it unnecessary when applying agile approaches? This lack of analysis can lead to unforeseen consequences during the development and deployment of business changes and software solutions.

This session discusses the importance of applying agile analysis at the enterprise level, right through to the product level, to ensure that product development focuses on delivering the right things.


Lynda Girvan has over 25 years of experience as a consultant, manager and trainer in business analysis, agile development, agile coaching and transformational change programmes across both the public and private sectors.

She has developed and led agile training portfolios and was a key contributor to the BCS Advanced Diploma in Business Analysis. Lynda is a principal consultant at CMC Partnership, where she leads the development of agile and business analysis within the consultancy practice and with clients.

Lynda has extensive experience of adding value to organisations through her business analysis work and is keen that agile software development is understood within the context of delivering business improvement.

She is the co-author of the BCS published books Agile and Business Analysis (2017) and Developing Information Systems (2014) and has spoken at numerous European and international conferences on these subjects.


So please join us (we welcome new people as well as known faces!) and come and find out more. There will also be time to network at the start and at the end of the session. We look forward to seeing you then!
