Who am I?
Many business analysts got lost during Agile Transformation. They become overwhelmed with lots of questions like Do I have a seat on this journey? What will be my role? Do I still have added value? In short, the BA may ask himself, who am I in this new world. I have been there one day and during this speech, you should learn not only how to survive in an Agile world but also how to lead it.

Traditional approaches to software architecture are broken, and agile methods offer little guidance. The result is brittle systems that cannot evolve. To fix this, technical professionals must build upon the fundamental goal of agile — rapid feedback so that development teams can respond to change.
