Cakici and Ivanov to Speak at BAWorld 2018 Conference in Washington, DC

EK senior consultants Tatiana Baquero Cakici and Yanko Ivanov will be speaking at the upcoming Project Summit Business Analyst World 2018 conference being held on June 18 – 20 in Washington, DC. The topic of their talk is “The Business Analyst Role: Agile vs. Waterfall”. The presentation will explore how the role of a Business Analyst (BA) changes when a software development team is trying to move from a traditional software development methodology, such as waterfall, to an agile approach. Cakici and Ivanov will focus on the mindshift areas that are necessary to make a BA successful on an agile project.

“A shift to an agile approach is not always trivial and a BA on a newly agile project needs to find their stride. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our experience and examples” said Cakici. Yanko Ivanov added, “EK has been leading the shift in the world of Knowledge Management to an Agile mindset. It is often underappreciated how that impacts the role of a traditional BA, and we are excited to be able to share our lessons learned.”
