Are you a business analyst who is new to Agile development, wants to know more about it from your business analysis viewpoint, is being asked to contribute to an Agile project, or is merely interested in how Agile principles can be applied to business analysis?

The report An Agile Development Framework for Business Analysts introduces an Agile development framework (ADF) for business analysts populated by three perspectives: artifacts, roles, and activities. ADF conceptualizes a set of views to show how these perspectives can help business analysts contribute to Agile projects and, specifically, how Agile principles can be applied to business analysis. With over thirty figures and tables, this report illustrates the Agile epic and story, explores a process “toolbox” at the business analysis level, and looks at the viability of a typical development sprint in accommodating all activities necessary for large, complex development involving business analysis. It also examines the implications of the framework when working within a DevOps regime and, finally, surveys an assurance view with the intent to apply an Agile, quality-control approach to ADF artifact development.
