Top Business Analysis Trends of 2013: BAs Will Be Seen as the Keystone to Adopting Agile

Modern businesses require effective business analysis in order to be successful in a competitive world. Business analysis involves taking information gathered from a variety of sources and analyzing to forecast future trends, find ways to make improvements in business strategies, improve businesses operations, and make smart business decisions to improve the bottom line. Understanding key marketing areas is essential to helping a business generate revenue and cut down on excess waste. 

According to Nancy Nee, vice president of Global Product Strategy, ESI International, there are some key business analysis trends that will be prominent in 2013.

At its core, Agile is all about requirements from the perspective of user stories, according to Yee. In 2013 if organizations are going to embrace Agile, they need to focus on the keystone to success of Agile, which is business analysis.

If they don’t have a current business analyst role, they will at least embrace the function of business analysis because at the end of the day Agile success is all about requirements and that is what BAs do because they are able to define user stories and be able to deliver value which is what Agile is about.
