Lean and Agile Business Analysis Is the New Normal

Whether you are working in an Agile or a traditional (read “waterfall”) environment, you should consider getting lean and agile in how you gather business needs. The move beyond traditional project management is a transition to agile management. The key to success for business analysts is to think and adopt a “lean” and “agile” mindset. That will help them become more effective in moving towards rapidly delivering business changes.

A Critical Success Factor is Breaking Big Projects into Smaller Tasks

A key principle of agile methodology is the breakdown of big projects into smaller tasks that the team completes over a series of sprints. These sprints are planned with a release planning meeting in which management approves or rejects new features that the sprint will deliver.

In order to make sure your team is working efficiently, you should also plan your sprints ahead in order to align them with any potential new releases to meet deadlines.
