Agile analysis: doing the right things to enable value creation

The ability to analyse business needs is an essential skill if we are to ensure that organisations focus their resources and investment funds on solving the root causes of problems. However, analysis skills are often overlooked or considered unnecessary when applying agile approaches. This talk discusses the importance of business analysis, when and by whom it should be done, and key analysis techniques that will ensure backlogs contain work items that will offer value to the business.
