Version 2 of the Agile Extension is the leading guide for effective agile business analysis approach across all levels of an organization

Toronto, ON, Aug. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The International Institute of Business Analysis(TM) (IIBA®), in partnership with Agile Alliance, released Version 2 of the Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide at AGILE2017, the largest international gathering of Agilists. Version 2 of the Agile Extension contains extensive revisions including new and updated techniques designed for agile practitioners to maximize customer and business value across all levels of an organization.

Version 2 provides a framework for agile business analysis that accelerates learning and helps determine what is really needed to deliver actual customer value. Agile techniques help practitioners maximize business value, rapidly learn, adapt and respond to change, and reduce waste. The Agile Extension fosters an understanding of how to use learning derived from stakeholder feedback to continually improve the delivery process and produce value constantly, in turn increasing the delivery of business value.

Introducing a multi-level rolling planning model, Version 2 helps practitioners, teams, and organizations incorporate customer feedback to make changes and deliver value fast. Version 2 features a description of the agile mindset that enables practitioners to adapt quickly as customer needs change, ensuring that value is always added.

"In fast paced and complex environments, an agile mindset is a competitive advantage," said Kent McDonald, Founder, KBP Media and core team member for the Agile Extension. "An agile mindset helps teams effectively deliver the right things by focusing on small increments at a time and incorporating actionable feedback, rather than performing the majority of the analysis up front."

Version 2 has evolved beyond software development and demonstrates how an agile mindset can be applied to all domains and how any BABOK® Guidetask can be performed in an agile context. In addition, the concept of three planning Horizons - Strategy, Initiative and Delivery, helps practitioners understand three different views of change within an organization.

"Whether you're a business analysis practitioner, team lead, or organizational leader, learning to leverage an agile mindset will deliver the most efficient and effective results for the business and the customer," said Shane Hastie, former Director, Agile Alliance and Director of Agile Learning Programs at ICAgile and core team member for the Agile Extension.

"The new extension will bring enormous value to the community. In today's uncertain, highly competitive world, the Agile Extension Version 2 becomes your foundational resource to help you sense, adapt and respond in ways that allow you to create better business outcomes and deliver greater business value," said Jas Phul, Director Product/IP Development with IIBA.

The Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide will be available online for IIBA and Agile Alliance Members in August 2017. It will be released for all audiences in print for $44.99 USD and digital for $24.99, and will be available for enterprise licensing in September 2017.

ProLynx announces SBIR grant award to develop novel technology for dual receptor agonists25.9.2017 15:00Pressemelding

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, ProLynx announced it was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the NIH to expand its technology platform to control delivery of two or more drugs in a single agent. In the ProLynx platform, a drug is tethered to hydrogel microspheres by a self-cleaving linker that is pre-programmed to release the drug at a pre-determined rate. After subcutaneous injection, the drug is slowly released from the microsphere carrier into the systemic circulation. Since the half-life of the released drug is solely dictated by the cleavage rate of the linker used, if two different drugs are attached to the same carrier by the same linker, the in vivo half-lives of the two drugs released will be the same. The relative potencies of each drug are controlled by the relative amounts of each drug attached to the carrier. Daniel Santi, cofounder, stated, "We will first develop this technology with a combination of our long
