Join us at Agile Fredericksburg as Mindy Bohannon brings us the talk "I’m a BA Girl in an Agile World".

Abstract:
Is what a business analyst (BA) does on an agile project much different from what is done on a waterfall project? Yes and No. Do the three amigos include the analyst or not? It certainly does! Although how the work is done depends on the team and 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, we’ll discuss how BAs impact agile project success.
