The Agile Business Analyst, IIBA workshop at Mumbai

International Institute of Business Analysis, IIBA's Mumbai chapter recently hosted the Agile BA workshop at Welingker Institute in Mumbai. Texavi was invited to conduct a workshop for the members and aspiring professionals. Participants comprised business systems analysts, product managers, project managers, academicians and other IT professionals.

Workshop Coverage

The workshop focused on the emerging role of business and systems analysts in the times of Agile development methodologies. Participants were led through the evolution of traditional software development practices and how business analysts had been developing, and managing requirements in the past.

We touched upon the emerging concepts and practices of agile development such as SCRUM, user stories and Kanban. The workshop ended with cases and examples on how the newer role of business analyst is similar to that of the product owner in the agile projects.

Takeaways for Participants

Texavi's workshop was interspersed with practical aspects and challenges arising in the day-to-day context of various roles in software product development projects. It covered the dynamics among them in real-life project scenarios.

Participants understood the concepts and documents involved in agile development methodologies such as product backlog, sprint backlog, user stories and user story cards. They also could see the sample documents and artifacts from actual projects. It was an interactive and lively session with participants raising numerous queries and sharing their experiences too.

"Texavi conducted a workshop on Agile methodologies for the Business Analyst. The trainer's knowledge on agile methodology has its roots grounded in experience. Therefore, whatever paradigm shifts Pardha makes happen with ease as the insights are soaked in hands-on experience. With Pardha conducting the Agile BA workshop, the audience belief in 'Agile works!' got established and people were ready to experiment the methodology in their respective work places."
