There is not only one correct approach in this adaptation. There can be many different techniques, different styles to achieve the agile workforce in the team. BAs naturally adapting themselves and evolving themselves with the help of this new way of working.

This way helped us to gain agile experience in our multicultural and international environment and taking the lead in our own company. This success has also encouraged us using different methodologies in our team like devops as well.
