What is an Agile Business Analyst? Intuitively, is a Business Analyst working in an Agile environment, right? This is the "definition" I can often hear from people, when debating this topic.
Well, this is not 100% accurate. A Business Analyst has to be always Agile, to embrace and promote the Agile values, principles and practices, beyond the environment he is working in. Even when acting in Waterfall, a Business Analyst still works with people, he can still drive the change of an organization/department, he can drive the client relationship etc. So, no matter that internal or external, he has to be focused on working with individuals, instead of tools and processes. And this is actually the most valued in Agile, according to Agile Manifesto.
