Listen in on my conversation with Camille Spruill as she educates us about the business analysis skills Agile teams desperately need. Camille helps us understand how the role of the traditional waterfall analyst is changing. She highlights how traditional analysts need to ‘step up their game’ in order to compete in this more-fast paced evolving project space. If you are working in waterfall and desire the opportunity to advance your skills – Camille shares her experience on how you must own your career path and begin your professional development journey with the one skill money can’t buy – self-motivation. The good news is we learn from Camille that the path to becoming an Agile BA is not that intimidating, very doable for those who seek it, and a whole lot of fun.
