Who Am I?
Mom of 2 boys
BA for 6+ years, 4 of them "agile"
by Diane Zajac-Woodie
Some challenges and opportunities
What stays the same
Benefits of crossing role boundaries
Your value is not in the tasks that you do!
Lack of Formal Training
A Good Coach
Lack of Information About "Agile" BA's
The Agile Community
Willing Team Members
"We don't need requirements - we're Agile!"
"Documentation is for losers."
"There's no planning in Agile."
"Yay! We don't need meetings anymore!"
"To be Agile, you must do x, y, z, etc..."
What Stays the Same
- Still need requirements!
- Still need meetings
- BA still the communication hub
- Still use Business Process Models
Add relevant notes here
- Less Formal Documentation
- When = Just in Time
- Executable Requirements
- Story Mapping
Team Members still siloed :(

George Bernard Shaw
