The Impact of DevOps on the Business Analyst
Presented by Michael Roberts, Director of Customer Engagement at ASPE Training
In this webinar, we will discuss how Business Analysts are impacted by the implementation of the DevOps methodology. Specifically, we will discuss the history and rise of continuous integration and continuous delivery in SDLC and how it impacts the Business Analyst. Items of consideration include accelerating delivery/shipment of code, working with IT operations teams, new tools, automation, and DevOps Culture. By way of example, we will discuss several “example” projects such as architecture changes, server/systems upgrades, new tools, deployment pipelines, and delivering features. In those example projects we will focus on who the stakeholders are and what items the BA needs to consider when working within the DevOps framework.
We will cover:
· History of CI/CD
· What traditional SDLC looks like
· How DevOps has made changes to SDLC and delivery
· The Role of the BA in the DevOps movement

Leading in a Diverse and Inclusive Culture - Free Seminar Preview
Presented by Carrie Spell-Hansson, Executive Director and Founder at The Folke Institute for Transformative Learning
Path to Becoming an Inclusive Leader
Diversity has evolved from a mere compliance exercise focused on meeting numbers for various measurable attributes (gender, race, age, disability), to the reality that our organizations are increasingly diverse, multicultural and global.
Today, we refer to inclusive leadership as an integrated set of skills that is required to channel the power and potential of a diverse workforce for the benefit of the organization, teams, workgroups, individual employees, customers, suppliers, and communities we serve.
This preview of the AMA seminar Leading in a Diverse and Inclusive Culture explains how this course gives you deeper insights into yourself, your team, and the benefits of inclusion at all levels in your organization.

Stop Gathering Requirements
Presented by Steve Blais, Solution Architect at Parkson International, Author, Consultant and Teacher
Are you still "gathering requirements"? In this world of agile software development where requirements have been absorbed and marginalized by user stories, epics, product backlogs, and direct conversation between the business stakeholders and the solution team, "gathering requirements" seems to be a thing of the past. Especially since requirements themselves seem to be the source of all the bad things that happen in software development. It seems that all failures in software development can be laid at the feet of the requirements.
The truth is that as business analysts, we shouldn't be "gathering requirements" in the first place. So what is it that we are supposed to be doing if not "gathering requirements"?
This webinar answers that question in a way that is applicable to the agile software development approaches, the traditional software development lifecycles, and even when, as a business analyst, you aren't involved with developing software at all.
In addition to answering the question the webinar will provide tips, techniques, and practices you can use to improve your solution definition expertise:
