Context
As organisations have started to adopt an Agile approach to software development, the role of the
Business Analyst has evolved from longer analysis and design activities done from initiation to
completion, to a world where software is produced iteratively is smaller release in sprints. For you to
succeed in a role as an Agile Business Analyst will require an understanding of agile methods
processes and approaches.

Introduction
    We will be analyzing the agile process, used for the software development process models. In 1990’s, there was development crisis known as application delivery lag where the industry thought that they could not meet the demands of the customer as the estimated time between the business requirements and finishing of the actual application is huge which lead to the introduction of agile methodology in the software industry.
Agile methodology is a kind of process for the project management where demands and solutions are evolved through the efforts of cross functional and self build teams and the customers. It focuses on the main principles that add the value to the flexibility and adaptability.
It is an iterative and incremental based development and a framework that promotes foreseen interactions through the development cycle. Planning, Analysis, Design, Coding, Testing and Maintenance are the software activities that need to be performed according to the demands of the customer. In Agile process, the highest priority is given to the customer satisfaction where the customer interacts directly to evaluate the software.
We will look into agile phases and how it adds value to the overall lifecycle of the software development by dividing the tasks into small increments.
Flow chart of Agile Methodology
Body
    For using the agile process, we consider the Agile Manifesto that declares the values and the principles that aims to help out to find the better ways of developing the software by giving a clear picture.
    Main values and principles that considered in the Agile Manifesto:
Values:
· Important interactions over the usage of process and tools.
· Building up the comprehensive documentation for the working software.
· Collaboration of customers over the negotiation of the contract used for building the software.
· Feedback over the change of the plan.
Principles:    
· Customer satisfaction through early and continuous software delivery
· Accommodation of amendable requirements during the development process
· Frequent delivery of the sub part of the software
· Collaboration between developers and stakeholders mapping.
· Motivating, supporting and trusting the people who are involved in the process
· Ability to have face to face interactions
· Primary progress of the process is the working software
· Supporting a consistent pace
· Studying the technical details and design
· Simplicity
· Use of architectural, requirements and designs
· Effectiveness during the process
During the management of the agile project, there are few deliverables important to track the progress and creation of the product which are available in the frameworks such as Kanban and Scrum.
In Scrum framework, we emphasized the five values: commitment, courage, focus, openness and respect. The difference that separates scrum from other agile methodologies is roles, events and the artifacts used for the operation. Roles of the scrum are product owner, who represents the stakeholders and customer, development team who represents the delivery of the product and the scrum...
