June BA Career Series - When will you be done?

When will you be done?

How to answer in an Agile framework!

FREE Virtual Partnership Event

Thursday, June 15, 2023
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (GMT - 4 hours)

In our BA Career Series sessions, in partnership with Ryland Leyton and other IIBA chapters, we will investigate specialized and complementary careers in business analysis, such as Agile Analyst, Business Relationship Management, Change Management, Product Ownership Analyst, Project Management, and others.

Answering the question “When will you be done?” to people outside the team – like the C-suite, directors, and managers – is often a challenge for teams focused on building software. Speaking to this group in a way comprehensible for an elevator or a hallway is a core competency for any agilist who wants to retain freedom and funding! This session takes a brief walk through the concept of velocity, explains the “cone of uncertainty,” burnup and burn-down charts, and then shows you how to provide a ready and truthful answer about when you’ll be done.

Note: For most presentations in this series, Ryland leaves plenty of time for Q&A at the end, and the session recordings are available for 30 days to registrants.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concept of velocity as used in common agile situations.
  • Understand what causes velocity to increase and decrease on teams.
  • Understand how to estimate large chunks of work to obtain useful range answers and project valid “finishing” answers for your stakeholders.
