Essential Skills for Agile Business Analysts //
Presented by: Susan A. Moore, AAC //
Date / Time  April 5, 2023 06:00 Central Time //
Location: Virtual - Free Webinar 

There’s a myth floating around agile organizations: business analysts aren’t needed. This myth is based on the belief that good collaboration will happen naturally when activities and roles that don’t add value are eliminated.

 Good collaboration doesn’t happen organically. It requires a mix of essential skills - communication and leadership - to facilitate productive collaboration.  Read the agile manifesto critically and you’ll find that each of the principles speaks to these essential skills.

So where can these essential skills be found amongst the agile team? In the work of the business analysis professionals. These skills are the collateral they bring to enable collaboration that leads to better outcomes.
