Business Analysis in SAFe. Why, Who, Where, When & How?
Thursday, April 18, 2024
Scaled Agile ways of working are taking the Tech industry by storm. Product Owner, Product Manager, Release Train Engineer, Scrum Master, Architect… But where is the Business Analyst in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)? At first glance, Business Analysts are out of the picture (literally) when we look at the framework, but does that mean there is no Business Analysis in SAFe? Of course not!
Many BAs see the SAFe framework as a threat to their career, but we should see this as an opportunity to leverage our BA skills set and deliver even more value to our organizations. Being a Business Analyst is doing Business Analysis tasks. That’s why I say that Scaled Agile is a multi-opportunity playing field for actual Business Analyst who are ready to learn and jump on the train toward agility at scale.
