Presenters: Katrien Vandevonder & Dirk Neefs

Objective(s) of the session:

The objective of this session is to get insight in why an agile analyst’s work is necessary in an agile team and what makes this job so demanding. Agile analysts are part of the development team and work in close collaboration with customers and developers. However, agile development is more than engineering practices. To give added value to the team an agile analyst needs a specific skill set, just like a circus artist.


  • Agile teams in different settings: cases
  • The tasks and required skills of an agile analyst throughout a typical scrum cycle: when does the stork bring the story?

Format and length: 60 minutes presentation and discussion with the audience.

Intended audience and prerequisites:

Anyone interested in what is happening in an agile team in addition to programming.
