Core Concept Model Change, Need, Solution, Stakeholder, Value, Context
Principles of Agile Business Analysis See the whole, Think as a customer, Analyze to determine what is valuable, Get real using examples, Understand what is doable, Stimulate collaboration and continuous improvement, Avoid waste
Change Act of transformation in response to a Need
Need Problem or opportunity to be addressed
Solution A specify way of satisfying one or more Needs in a Context
Stakeholder Group or individual with a relationship to the Change, Need or Solution
Value The worth, importance, or usefulness of something to a Stakeholder within a Context
Context The circumstances that influence, are influenced by, and provide understanding of the Change
Principle of Change concept Change is central to all principles of agile business analysis
Principle of Need concept Get real using examples
Principle of Solution concept Stimulate collaboration and continuous improvements
Principle of Stakeholder concept Think as a customer
Principle of Value concept Get real using examples and avoid waste
Principle of Context concept See the whole
See the whole Analyze needs in the context of the big picture. Focus on why change is needed. Assess how solutions deliver value in meeting the stakeholder need. Use systems thinking to create value by understanding the context, solution and stakeholders.
Think as a customer Solutions guide the user experience through the voice of the customer. Customers are stakeholders that use the solution. Decompose high-level needs to understand how the solution must change through feedback and learning.
Analyze to determine what is valuable Assess and prioritize work to maximize value. Maximize the work not done and deliver valuable solutions early and continuously. Understand the purpose of requirements. Ensure solutions support the desired outcome.
Get real using examples Use examples to build a shared understanding of the need and solution. Use analysis models at different dimensions and levels of abstraction, for acceptance criteria, for solution design, and for testing.
Understand what is doable Continually analyze the need and deliver solutions that satisfies the need within constraints. Constraints include technology, team skills, time to deliver, team capacity and velocity. Manage expectations on an ongoing basis.
Stimulate collaboration and continuous improvement Create an environment where all stakeholders contribute value continuously. Use feedback and retrospectives to learn how to adapt the solution and improve the processes.
Avoid waste Identify which activities add value and which activities do not add value. Wasteful activities either have value but do not satisfy the need, or do not add any value at all. Deliver only a solution that satisfies the need.
Avoid wasteful documents Avoid producing documents before they are needed. Create just-enough documentation when it is needed.
Avoid wasteful delays Always complete all dependent work items that could impact downstream activities.
Avoid wasteful rework Make commitments at the last responsible moment.
Avoid wasteful models Use the same model for analysis, specification, and requirements validation.
Avoid wasteful complex models Make analysis models as simple as possible to meet the intended purpose.
Avoid wasteful communication Keep communication clear and effective
Avoid wasteful quality defects Pay attention to technical excellence and accuracy
