Developed in collaboration with the Agile Alliance
, the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide
provides guidance on the effective practice of business analysis in an agile context. Agile business analysis is about increasing the delivery of business value to the stakeholders of the project or product being developed.
The Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide provides seven key guidelines for the practice of business analysis within an agile environment. These guidelines are supported by a Discovery Framework and a Delivery Framework that articulate specific techniques, proven to be successful for agile teams in delivering value. The Agile Extension to the BABOK Guide® is aligned to A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®Guide) v2 and covers all aspects of agile business analysis:
Introduction to agile practices for business analysis
Mapping of existing business analysis techniques to agile practices
Set of definitions of typical working practices used by business analysts on agile projects
Overview of the new and changed roles, skills, and competencies for business analysts
In July, IIBA and Agile Alliance announced a Memorandum of Understanding that outlines their collaboration on the development of value-add publications, events and engagements for the benefit of the practitioner community and the broader business analysis and corporate community. An important initiative of this new collaboration is the development and publication of a revised edition of the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide
, which was first published in 2013. The revised edition will provide guidance and insight on the effective practice of business analysis in an Agile context both at the practitioner level and enterprise level.
The revised extension will include new techniques and approaches and will involve the engagement of volunteer subject matter experts from around the globe. The new Agile Extension will be launched in 2017.
The current version of Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide continues to be a value tool for business analysis practitioners working in agile environments.
