ANSWER

The Agile Manifesto was created in mid-February, 2001 by 17 software development professionals.  As a group, they represented Extreme Programming, SCRUM, DSDM, Adaptive Software Development, Crystal, Feature-Driven Development, and Pragmatic Programming, and were generally sympathetic to the need for lighter-weight software development processes.

The Agile Manifesto is a declaration of guiding software development principles with the goal of delivering value early in an iterative fashion.

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development reads as follows:

“We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan.

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.”

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
