This tutorial teaches how to use a simple 5 component model to identify and prioritise stories on a project. The five elements to the model are: Business Objectives (value and goals) Business Actors (who does this) Business Events (when does this happen) Business Process (what needs to be done) Business Objects (what do we do it with - information and/or tools) The tutorial introduces the model as a tool for understanding current (“as is”) and future state (“to be”), identifying the stories for the future state and teaches the participants how to use it on a mock project.
Despite what you may have heard, analysis is still an important aspect of projects done in an agile manner. Teams still need to understand what they are delivering in what order. The trick is to how to utilize traditional analysis techniques without introducing the corresponding waste that can be experienced with those techniques. In this session, we introduce Feature Injection and demonstrate how it combines traditional analysis techniques and the agile technique Behavior Driven Development to identify the business value delivered by a project without introducing analysis paralysis.
