Of Course We Need Analysis in Agile
Presented by: Emily Midgley
No, we don’t necessarily need analysts. But we need people who can do analysis. That means we all need to stop worrying about job titles.
But what is analysis in agile, anyway? What skills, competencies and techniques are best suited for this type of work?
For those of us who are analysts in large companies now, where do we go? It turns out that our skills can be used in a variety of ways. From supporting development teams to supporting Product Owners to becoming Product Owners, people with analysis skills are a vitally important component to success in agile environments.
- How in the real world, development team members support Product Owners
- Analysis techniques critical to delivering customer value
- Analysis techniques that help improve pace and quality
- Ways to increase your influence in an Agile environment
