Hi Swapna,

If you're not very familiar with Agile methods in general you should take a look at some of the interview questions and answers.  You can do a search for Agile and find quite a few.

Here is one that discusses SCRUM a very popular Agile approach.

Here is another that talks about User Stories which are commonly used to document requirements in an Agile environment.

 I would also visit the agile alience's site and read the manifesto.  It is important to remember that agile is a cultural shift and a way of thinking. Yes it does have a process but that process is less important than the spirit of agile.

read this link and determine just how "agile" your environment intends to be.

I agree with what Perry says and here is my quick reply: The two most important artifacts in Agile are User stories and the Sprint schedule (you may have a backlog and several other supporting artifacts that are required by the administrative process within your team).

If you are on a Agile team, you could be co-located with your business partners and IT team members. This usually means that you will have some sort of a display of user stories and the schedule. I find this type of dashboard to be very helpful. You can take a lead on setting one up if you team is not already using one.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
