I have reflected back on a number of agile projects and the same agile business analysis problems keep coming up. These problems cause major pain from stakeholders to the teams and I feel are contributing a large amount to project delivery failure.This talk will highlight why agile business analysis is failing and a way to solve it by encouraging people to build a mindset ('seeing') to realise behaviour and information flow.
