BA and Beyond 19 - Antonio Gonzalez - How can we help teams to start new ideas

821 views

Published on

As Business Analysts, we play a major role when starting a new idea. In an Agile environment it's not so crucial to gather all requirements upfront but to help the team to identify what's the minimum piece of work that can deliver value as soon as possible.

In this talk, I would like to share my experience as a BA with three different approaches that you can use to start a new idea:

Agile Inception
Design Sprint
Hackweek
For each of those three, you'll learn what they are and when it's best to use each of them. Related to those, I will also focus on the role of a BA (always speaking in 'first person'). Get ready to hear some real-life stories!
