Agile methods and approaches continue to be prevalent

Do you have an Agile Mindset?

Agile methods and approaches have become prevalent in recent years.

The ideas which were identified in the realm of software product development have spread beyond software development into many other areas that are impacted by business analysis. This means that the practice of business analysis has to evolve to support the new ways of working, not just in software development but in any area of the business where change is happening rapidly. In this context, the term agile refers to a mindset or way of thinking about work. IIBA can help augment foundational capabilities focusing on applying an agile perspective within a business analysis framework.
