In recent years, Agile frameworks have become widespread, moving beyond the core area of software development towards any area of the business where changes happen within a fairly short time. Being “agile” on your business means, nowadays, to apply a common set of values and underlying competencies, prior to the technical skills.

These human features are better known as “agile mindset”. Key elements of any agile mindset are inspection and adaptation. Focusing on maximizing business value, the Agile Business Analysis is the natural methodology for better development of any type of business outcomes.

Planning Horizons and Right Techniques are main ingredients of the Agile BA formula, presented by Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide to assure an appropriate level of granularity, responding time frame, and feedback loop exploitation in fast changing environment.
