Agile Business Analysis

Agile project management in a traditional corporate governance

The search for more efficient methods of project management recently focuses on the so-called agile approaches. We learn AgilePM®, SCRUM and we use them as an effective complement to traditional approaches.
It seems that all agile approaches highlight and support the two iron rules that must accompany the project team:

  • Cooperate” - members of the team are one team kicking the ball to one goal, no 'blame culture', no ‘business versus IT ‘ neither, ‘us and them’.
  • "Communicate constantly and clearly" - because we have to understand each other in our communication.

Project Managers are responsible for ensuring that the project team has an effective collaboration process. They have to create such ‘project machine', which - on the basis of empowering people - will allow participants to self-organize and make decisions in the project. Without referring to decision of higher management every time. This is the essence of agile project management methodology - AgilePM.

And what about the quality of communication?
If I write an email to someone, and they did not respond, it is not a communication problem. This is a problem of cooperation. However, if we talk, and we do not understand each other, this is a problem of communication.
Examples of wrong communication in the project can be:

  • Preparation of forms that users have fulfilled with their requirements, and then passing them to them technical team
  • Preparation of too extensive requirement documentation, which no one understands or cannot get through.

And here we come to the point that we need to have someone in the project, who directs acquisition requirements, create the entire process of capturing requirements, solving of conflicts and managing dependencies. Such a role is mentioned in AgilePM role of the Business Analyst.

AgileBA® - Agile Business Analysis Guide covers all about this role, its responsibilities, and in particular about the techniques and tools of Business Analyst working in an agile project.

AgileBA shows how the Business Analyst will perform their duties in the project and how they will apply known analytical techniques (for example PESTLE, SWOT, TOWS) in an agile project. We'll find out how strong it is and how to use Facilitated Workshops to make the best quality decision as soon as possible - so all feel as their authors. We'll find out how strong the modeling and prototyping techniques are, and how perfectly they replace tons of documentation generated by traditional analysts, who do not understand the essence of agile project. We'll also learn that "a figure is worth more than a thousand words."
 
OMEC offers a combined training AgilePM / AgileBA Foundation.
