In this session, presented by Kevin Aguanno, agile guru and co-author of the new book “Agile Business Analysis: Enabling Continuous Improvement of Requirements, Project Scope, and Agile Project Results”, participants will learn how crucial business analysis skills are to agile project success as well as the changing role of the BA in agile delivery.
