Delivering Business Value bit by bit
Software development exists, in the end, to solve Business problems and bring as much Business value as possible. If our role is the one of “Business Analyst” in a software company, we feel not meeting our goals if we are not able to identify the real Business needs and if we are not able to prove the Business value delivered by the applications or features to be developed. Is it enough to have a number set as “Business value” for each user story? Should we also be aware of the real Business value behind that number? Would this help us and our teams provide the best possible solution and do things right from the very beginning?
