Agile has shown that doing prolonged analysis upfront bears little to no value to the customer. However, doing none means the project lacks the direction that it needs. The question is, how much analysis is enough before the project starts?
Often times, the inception activities can set a project up for success or failure. In this 3-hour workshop, we aim to give an introduction of how an intensive, focused series of activities can kickstart a project. Led by a Business Analyst and a Developer, the participants will simulate a short inception that shapes a project from concept to delivery.
The International Institute for Business Analysis ( IIBA ) has drawn up a Business Analysis Book of Knowledge.

This session introduces “Feature Injection”, a toolkit to help Business Analysts become effective on an Agile Project.
Feature Injection structures the process of “Example” discovery for business analysts so that they can feed directly into a BDD/TDD development process.
Feature Injection consists of…
- Find the Business Value.
- Inject the Features.
- Break the Model to find the Examples.
This is a toolkit based on actual experience of business analysts on Agile projects. Feature Injection is a variant in the TDD / BDD family of tools.
