Finding the BA in Agile and Scrum
Are you struggling to find your place on agile and Scrum teams? Are you having trouble with user story writing or with effective estimation and forecasting? Do you know how a Business Analyst contributes as a Scrum Team member? Do your leaders actually understand the underlying principles? Are they measuring things properly? And what about your business partners. Are you delivering products that delights your customers? If you have questions, any questions, about how to improve specific practices or generally how to improve your agile journey, then this talk is for you. Join Ryan Ripley, an agile leader, practitioner, trainer, and coach, as he does something quite unique. Instead of a canned presentation, Ryan will customize the tutorial to the needs of the participants—gather your questions, create a backlog, and work to answer all your tough questions.
