Business Analysis and the Agile Mindset

Business analysis is all about understanding your organisation or enterprise, to help you recognise and overcome your pain points and any barriers to change and growth.

Applying the agile mindset in business analysis makes the path to change clear and provides an accessible, measurable framework for action.

Full Lifecycle Business Analysis

First, we need to see your business with absolute clarity.

This requires a full lifecycle business analysis.

We examine all your processes forensically, from beginning to end.

This is a structured approach, and one we can repeat and apply, with any modifications, depending on your individual project requirements.

Full lifecycle business analysis involves these key stages:

Analysing your enterprise

Extracting your requirements

Analysing these requirements

Assessing and approving solutions

Planning and monitoring

Communicating and coordinating action

Embedding continuous improvement.

We assess and analyse your requirements carefully, to ensure they will meet your business needs.

By applying working software and using clear communications at every stage, we can develop and apply the right solutions to make positive change happen for your business.

From Waterfall to Agile Mindset

The agile approach to business analysis equips you for present and future change.

What makes the agile mindset different to the waterfall model?

The traditional, waterfall model is a series of linear steps, making logical progress towards change and completion of projects.

Issues can arise when you want to go back and change things that have occurred at an earlier stage.

The waterfall model is logical but not flexible. Because its outcomes are confined to the end stages of the process, it can mean high degrees of risk and uncertainty. It is therefore not suitable for all types of business or organisation.

The agile mindset involves an alternative approach:

It is an iterative model, meaning it involves a repeatable cycle of actions and operations, taking small steps to deliver your goals and objectives.

These incremental steps create tangible value, and allow you to gather feedback at each stage of development.

The agile mindset promotes better collaboration and interaction among the teams and individuals working for you.

We can ensure your transition from waterfall to agile is a simple progression.

We do this by working closely with you and your teams, supporting individuals and interactions.

Our recommendations and actions are clear and measurable.
