Do the Business Analyst's (BA) roles and responsibilities on an agile project differ from those on a waterfall project? Should the three amigos always include the analyst? At a minimum, the answer is certainly yes to both questions, although how the work is done depends on the team and project. During this session we will review how the role of a Business Analyst on an agile project can vary, and further discuss the impact on the development team and what makes a Business Analyst good at his/her job. 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, and with the larger group of all attendees, we will discuss how Business Analysts produce influence and impact on an agile project's success.
