Traditional Business Analysis vs Agile Business Analysis

Purpose :

In a traditional Business Analysis environment, the business analyst has control of the requirements. . Once the documentation is reviewed and signed off by it becomes the bible for the development team and any functionality which is not documented should be negotiated with the business user or will be deemed out of scope whereas in the Agile Business Analysis the requirements are documented as epics or user stories and the product owner has the flexibility to choose to remove any functionality or add new functionality. The change is discussed with the sprint team and they can choose to accept it as part of the ongoing sprint or in the next one depending on the criticality. We shall further discuss more on the differences on how the differences play a role depending on the organization structure and culture.
