Business analysis professionals frequently find themselves on Agile development teams only to discover that many of the tools and techniques no longer work effectively. Agile Scrum is an incremental, iterative framework for project management and software development in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.
Project success is dependent on how effective you manage change. Many traditional project teams run into trouble when they try to define all of the requirements up front, but the reality is that the requirements document is usually insufficient. Regardless of how much effort goes into it, requirements change during the project and have to be updated. Agile experts know that if they have the ability to elicit detailed requirements up front then they can also do the same when they actually need the information. In short, agile professionals strive to truly manage change, not to prevent it.
