As more organizations shift to an Agile way of working, many Business Analysts are unsure what this change means for their role.

In today’s business environment, we see organizations across the full spectrum of Agile adoption.  A few companies are fully Agile in both practices and mindset.  However, most organizations currently operate in a bi-modal manner, applying both Agile and Waterfall approaches as they move along their Agile adoption journey.

To support consistency in the use of effective practices and to establish a common language among practitioners, the International Institute for Business Analysis (IIBA) recently rolled out a new Agile Analysis certification.  The certification brings credibility to the role of a Business Analyst in an Agile environment and helps show that analysis is a much needed skill, even in Agile.
