Building the business case for an agile transformation

I was very impressed to see one of our Senior Account Managers, Daniel Luschwitz, actively blogging in the agile space recently –

Daniel very succinctly outlines an effective approach for creating a buzz and winning support for Agile in an organisation, summarised by his quote:

“We want you to be a part of the team that is developing this product. Every two weeks we will show you what we have done. You can then give us feedback about you would like and what you would like us to chance. We want to work on the items that are most important to you first up. If you want additional features along the way, no problem, we’ll show you what is left to achieve and you can make a decision on what is more important.”

For me, this posting demonstrates how the passion and enthusiasm of one group (in this case Software Education’s trainers) can rub off on another (our ‘pesky sales people’ as Daniel cheekily refers to himself in his post). Nice one Dan!

IIBA Debate now online

In May this year Pete Tansey and I debated the Role of the Analyst in Agile Projects for an IIBA New Zealand members only event.
The session was videotaped and is now available to view on InfoQ:

What do you think – how does the BA role change in Agile projects?
