Creating Requirements During Times of Constant Change

Description automatically generated with medium confidenceAs business analysts, we are known for being experts at identifying and managing business requirements. But how should our most notable skills be adapted as the world around us is going through constant change? The remote BA cannot depend upon “hallway” networking and face-to-face interpersonal skills. A completely remote or hybrid environment can block the flow of communication with our stakeholders. There is a need for the BA to have a sense of personal agility, whether their workplace culture is agile or not. And although always important, requirements traceability is now more important than ever. Amid business disruption, the BA needs to track requirements changes using the best practices and tools at their disposal. So, how can a BA, whether remote or not, continue to deliver the value expected in requirements creation and maintenance amid this constant change? Join us and learn the answers.

Learning Objectives: 

  • How to overcome remote communication blockers
  • How to manage stakeholders in a remote environment
  • How to incorporate personal agility into requirements elicitation and management
  • How to use best practices and tools to maintain requirements traceability
