About a month ago I was honored to talk with Dave Saboe on his Mastering Business Analysis Podcast. We talked about my forthcoming (for a while now) book Beyond Requirements: Analysis with an Agile Mindset and other things analysis and agile.
I take a shot at providing a practical, useful explanation of Feature Injection, an approach where teams understand the value an initiative intends to deliver, deliver the features that provide that value, and build a shared understanding about those features primarily through examples.
Let me know what you see coming in 2015 for business analysis, and I’ll include it in a hopefully accurate post on predictions for the upcoming year.
In a recent blog post I predicated that within the year PMI would come out with a Requirements Management Certification. In the interest of full disclosure and learning from our mistakes, I’m writing here to acknowledge I was wrong, well sort of. PMI is coming out with a another certification, but it’s not limited to Requirements Management.
This morning (November 22, 2013) I had the opportunity to be involved in a very unique discussion. SkillsMatter hosted the Agile Testing & BDD Exchange in London. This particular discussion involved people from three different countries, and only one of them was actually in London when the conversation occurred.
