Satisfying Stakeholders with Agile Requirements

As organizations work to be more agile and nimble, people responsible for eliciting and analyzing requirements are working to find new ways to understand and communicate about user and product needs. Traditional approaches to detailed requirements documents are being modified to accommodate faster, more lightweight communication methods. Business analysts must adjust their work styles and deliverables to fit into these new project development life cycles. To help our customers adjust their analysis practices to a more agile style we offer a case study based course teaching students to develop effective agile requirements. Take a look at this two day, virtual session and listen to my podcast below to learn how you can become more nimble while continuing to satisfy stakeholder needs on your next project.

Director, Business Analysis at RMC Learning Solutions
Throughout my career my passion has been to enable people and organizations to succeed through analysis. Analytical thinking allows organizations to increase their process efficiency and improve the quality of their products.

My passion for critical thinking and providing business value drove me to help define the business analysis profession. The business analysis profession is made up of individuals who excel at evaluating problems, identifying possible solutions, and assessing costs and benefits before recommending a change. As an early IIBA® member, I worked on the development of a worldwide standard for business analysis, the BABOK® Guide. I continue to volunteer with the IIBA mentoring, writing, presenting, and promoting the organization and its principles.
