The PMINJ BA LCI will work to provide additional value to PMINJ members and people in the community with a specific focus on Business Analysis activities. The LCI provides a forum to share common interests and challenges, share experiences related to business analysis tasks on project teams, discuss trends associated with business analysis, provide continuing education and learn from other business analysis practitioners. 

Primary focus to include:
  • Increasing awareness of business analysis issues faced by a Project or Program Manager
  • Educating people on business analysis tools and techniques
  • Creating networking opportunities for people that work as business analysis tasks in the context of project and program management
  • Evaluating and sharing resources that are suitable for people assigned to business analysis tasks
  • Creating ways to help and support people studying for the PMI-PBA exam
  • Forming a communication link between PMINJ and other LCIs
The BA LCI is also still looking for volunteers for the core committee. For more information, contact Ann Marie Regan at the contact information (above) with the subject line “PMINJ LCI – BA”

The Agile LCI provides a specific focus on Scrum, eXtreme Programming (XP), Kanban and other Agile practices. We share common interests and challenges, experiences related to the setup and operation of Agile teams, discuss trends associated with Agility, provide continuing project management education, and learn from other Agile practitioners.  Our focus includes:

  • Defining the benefits Agile practices offer
  • Bringing in Agile(such as Scrum) into an organization (bottom-up, top-down, stealth, etc.)
  • Ordering a backlog and maximizing ROI
  • Creating enterprise agility (e.g. LeSS; SPS; SAFe, etc.)
  • Highlighting the rules of Scrum vs. the advantage of a Framework
  • Identifying success factors (for profit vs. not for profit; internal vs. external products)
  • Quantifying metrics such as burndowns, burnups, velocity (its interpretation, use and misuse)
  • Planning releases
  • Sharing specific experiences regarding the setup and ongoing management of effective Agile Teams.
  • Studying trends associated with Agility (e.g. Version One Annual Survey)
  • Bringing awareness of various Agile organizations offering certifications and continuing education such as Scrum Alliance, Scrum.Org, ICAgile, and SAFe.

The Agile LCI is also still looking for volunteers for the LCI-Agile core committee. For more information, contact Nitin Khanna at the contact information (above) with the subject line “PMINJ LCI – Agile”
