There seems to be a trend going on in the business analysis world for relabeling things that were previously done with new “agile” labels. Bob the BA has done that in this recent article for Modern Analyst where he took what we used to call “tailor your communication to your audience and their needs” and put it under the “Minimally Viable Deliverable” name. However, he makes a lot of good points in this article and if you aren’t familiar with the principle already maybe attaching an agile-like buzzword will make you curious enough to read it and learn.
Besides, how could not want to recommend something written by someone who describes their job as “provid[ing] badass business analysis training, consulting and mentoring services”. 🙂
