AgileBA® - a set of best prctices and guidelines for business analysts (not system analysts) working in Agile projects (especially projects running using DSDM® AgilePF® or AgilePM® methods). AgileBA® provides general (not industry specific e.g. IT or Engineering) agile business analysis gudlines. AgileBA® was created by DSDM® Consortium -

Agile Business Analysis (AgileBA™) 1st version was published in 06.2015 (with training and accreditation scheme).

(please share, like and give feedback - your feedback and comments are my main motivation for further elaboration. THX!)

A requirement may begin life as an idea, a need, or a statement of a problem to be addressed.

4. Respect the customer (the BA is not the customer, even by proxy!)

5. Draw diagrams! Have a high level blueprint for the project, to enable dependencies to be seen

DSDM® (v6) AgilePF® method Principles (8)

Principles are universally applicable statements.

The 8 principles of DSDM® direct the team (not mandates) in the attitude and culture they must take and the mindset they must adopt in order to deliver consistently.

If a team doesn't follow all the principles then they don't get the full benefit.

Treat non-adherence to the principles as a risk.
