March 9th Monthly Meeting

Top 10 Skills Needed for BAs to Survive in an Agile World 


Stacey Ackerman, CSM

Join us for a professional development evening when we discuss what happens to the BA in Scrum, which is the most widely used and recognized agile framework.  In Scrum, there are only three roles: Scrum Master, product owner, and development team.  There is no mention of a business analyst role.  What does that mean for our industry?  

Our presenter, Stacey Ackerman, is a Certified Scrum Manager and Certified Scrum Product Owner who is a contributing writer to the Scrum Alliance.  After 15+ years in business, she opened her own consultancy, Ackerman Consulting Services, where she has helped companies like Thomson Reuters and Best Buy become more agile using the Scrum Framework.

"Leading with Learning": Our monthly meetings have an informal start at 6:15 PM when Stewart Mednick, President of our chapter, presents a topic from the BABOK Guide.  

Do you need to come to meetings straight from work?  Remember that there is a hot buffet.
