“PMs are from Mars, BAs are from Venus”, East Region Virtual IIBA Collaboration (Wilmington & Jacksonville)
I’m sure we’ve all been on a project where it felt like your cohort was from a completely different planet! However, according to PMI research, “successful projects require a high level of collaboration between both the project, program, or portfolio manager and business analyst. Risks are minimized and project and product success rates improve when these critical roles are aligned and operate in partnership. When this alignment is missing, project performance, customer satisfaction, team morale, and the end product will be adversely impacted.”
Join us as we discuss what is business analysis, the relationship between project management and business analysis, and how this relationship is arguably even more important on agile teams.
