The customer on the project states that they have provided “all” of the requirements for the project. Your design and development team disagrees, but no one knows how to bridge the gap and elicit additional detail from the customer (while not frustrating them even further).
Your team is trying to communicate (a great start!). Unfortunately, they are all speaking different languages (swim lanes, entity relationship diagrams, context level data flow diagrams, etc.). Help!
Your team has defined a lot of requirements. In fact, so many that you have requirement redundancies and conflicts and a large number of unnecessary requirements.
Your team completed their deliverable, but then it had to be reworked… and reworked… and …does it ever end?
Your team has finished the requirements and provided them to the customer. The customer walks into your office with the requirements in-hand and asks you; “I have read this, but could you remind me what project this is for?”

Becoming an Agile Business Analyst: The Fundamentals (1-day Seminar) – The focus of this one-day course is to help you understand where requirements fit within the Scrum framework and the role the Business Analyst (BA) can play on Agile projects. The course begins with an introduction to the Agile Manifesto and the 12 Principles. This discussion is then followed by an in-depth examination of Scrum, the roles, responsibilities, activities and skillsets so that the BA can become an effective member and major contributor to the development team.
