May 26th General Meeting

Speaker: Steve Kraus, Senior Manager Business Architecture & Analysis, Daugherty Business Solutions

PRESENTATION OVERVIEW

Title:  The role of the Business Analyst in an Agile World

Description:  When an enterprise begins its Agile journey, one of the top questions in everyone’s mind is ‘how will this affect me?’ In particular, there is the concern that the skill sets built up over years of experience will no longer have a place in the new Agile approach.  This is certainly true for Business Analysts, who may mistakenly think that the replacement of long, detailed requirements documents with Agile practices means that their skills may no longer be required.

Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, the Agile approach places the Business Analyst more solidly in the center of the construction process. However, the BA will find their skills being applied in new and different ways. This presentation focuses on how the BA’s role changes within the Agile approach, and how their existing skills are leveraged to make the Agile experience a successful one for both IT and the business.

SPEAKER BIO

As a Certified Scrum Master and Certified Scaled Agile Coach, Steve Kraus has over 10 years’ experience assisting organizations in making the transition to the agile mindset. Steve’s Agile journey began when he was the CIO of a mid-sized company, where he led the conversion of their waterfall-based software construction efforts to an agile approach. He is currently engaged at a major local retailer, assisting them with Agile training, coaching, and planning as they begin their Agile journey.
