Chapter Annual General Meeting
Annual Review of Chapter Operations
Chapter Elections (President, VP of Communications, & VP of Finance)
Speaker - Brian Watson
Topic – The Agile BA
Agile. One single word has sparked an unprecedented amount of confusion in the technology world. Did your organization throw out your business analyst team when it went “agile”? Have they banned all documentation? Are teams struggling to see the “big picture today”?
Often the relationship between the product owner and the team develops through the activities normally associated to business analysts. Learn how this relationship grows through identifying and building a minimum viable product (MVP), which manifesto principles are critical to your business analysts, the truth behind the cost of extensive documentation, how to use “just enough” documentation to be successful, and discover how to harness your business analysis skills to navigate the stormy waters of an agile transformation.
Join us as we look at facts and bust the myths about requirements, documentation, teamwork and the role of the business analyst in an agile environment.
