A Common Business Analysis Model: A Bridge from Waterfall to Agile Transformation
A transition to agile comes with challenges for business analysts who are navigating the waters between documenting waterfall business requirements and transitioning to a collaborative, less artifact heavy agile environment. Come learn how one of the country's largest healthcare insurance carriers navigated this change, and was able to support a common requirements gathering process that was methodology agnostic by creating a common analysis innovation model for one of it's largest business analysis organizations.
What Attendees Will Learn:
- How to ensure that teams understand that business analysis must still be conducted, even when following an Agile methodology
- Identify how organizations that have two distinctly different development frameworks in play (Waterfall and Agile) can use a common method of documenting requirements that are consumable
- How team members from both Business and IT came together to innovate and create a solution for documentation of requirements
