Agile Training For Business Analysts & Product Owners: Why Bother?
For Business Analysts & product owners on Agile Projects, training can be the difference between a mediocre and a great performance on the team. Sue Bramhall, consultant and owner of Solutionsonsite, says a high number of software development projects fail due to poor and unclear business requirements.
“When a company takes on a major development project, they often assign product ownership to business analysts, product owners or other similarly qualified professionals, whose core skills don’t necessarily extend to managing Agile business requirements,” says Bramhall.
“In today’s fast-moving and highly cost-sensitive environment, CEOs don’t want to spend months and months developing, analysing and revising their business requirements up front only for things to change midway through the process – and things always change.”
