Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide

Describes both the mindset and practices to help you use continuous feedback and quick learning to prioritize delivery, minimize waste, create better business outcomes and increase value delivered. 

Based on experiential learning, the Agile Extension introduces a rolling planning model with three planning horizons – strategy, initiative and delivery – to help you adapt quickly to changing customer needs and ensure value is always added. 

Version 2 incorporates the Business Analysis Core Concept Model™ and new and updated techniques, including Feature Driven Development, Impact Mapping, Value Modelling and Visioning. 

Developed in collaboration with the Agile Alliance, the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide  provides guidance for agile practitioners, or anyone interested in leveraging effective agile business analysis to create better business outcomes that add real business and customer value. 

Introducing Concept of Horizons

The three planning horizons
- StrategyInitiative and Delivery - 

bring together both the big picture and the narrow view of change within an organization. The multi-level rolling planning model helps practitioners, teams and organizations adapt quickly to changing customer needs and ensure value is always added.
