Business Analysis and Architecture Support of Large, Scaled-Agile Programs

Presented by: Dean Larson


Scaling agile on large enterprise programs is hard.  The need to coordinate multiple Scrum teams all while implementing strategic enterprise changes that affect multiple business domains is a daunting task.  But help is available.   A judicious application of enterprise business analysis and business architecture methods and artifacts is a powerful tool for coordinating and guiding these large scaled agile programs. 

Dean Larson was Enterprise Business Analyst for just such a program at Be The Match®, a global leader in bone marrow transplantation.  Dean will explain and demonstrate the business analysis and business architecture techniques and artifacts that provided critical information and actionable insights for the individual Scrum teams as well as to the overall program team and executive sponsors.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe four modeling techniques that provide context for user stories and epics
  • Know the three components of a business architecture that program sponsors need the most
  • Describe five techniques for developing artifacts that agile teams love
