As the business analysts play a critical role in projects, the result of their work directly determines the outcome of the whole project and the transition to agile way of working needs to be considered.
Every organization is embracing in certain aspects the Agile approach because of its adaptability, response to change and faster time-to-market. In these times of increased competition, customer demands need to be met quickly. The traditional business analysis methodology does not meet these requirements – it expects that you specify your requirements entirely (and time is never enough to make them ideal) before moving on to other stages of the process in a linear fashion, only to find out later that they are no longer relevant and do not bring value to the customer.
