June 8th Monthly Meeting

The Agile Business Analyst



Bob Prentiss


Are you confused by Agile?  Don't know how you fit in as a Business Analyst?  Trust me: you are not alone.  For whatever reason, there are many approaches to Agile but very few initially address how the Business Analyst fits into the approach and how business analysis is generally done.  Are you ready to find out what you should be doing on an Agile project?  Are you ready to find out what you COULD be doing on an Agile project?  Don't let people tell you a Business Analyst is not part of an Agile team because the growing trend is that today's Agile teams, in fact, do need Business Analysts.  Come join Bob the BA for a dynamic and interactive hour where you will find out the WWWWWH of Agile Business Analysis!



- Learn the Agile myths about business analysis and some of the Agile principles.

- Learn why Agile organizations are starting to embrace the Business Analyst role (again).

- Learn the value of having a Business Analyst on an Agile team.

- Learn how a Business Analyst will adapt to an Agile team and the value that they bring.


Our speaker, Bob Prentiss, is a keynote speaker, author, mentor, coach and Business Analysis thought leader.  Bob is the CEO and founder of Bob the BA Training, providing badass business analysis training, consulting and mentoring services.  Bob the BA helps organizations transform their requirements practices utilizing modern techniques, an agile mindset and street-smart approaches to get the work done faster.  Bob is CBAP certified with 30 years of experience in corporate America.  He is a founding member and past President of the IIBA MSP chapter.

Buffet: Do you need to come to the meeting directly from work?  The buffet is available starting at 5:30 PM.
