    Which part of "Takes the software requirements from the customers to the developers" was difficult to understand?

        and point proven... Suity understood I was returning the compliment.

        Your BA's may well do that, ours make things work and channel the stupidity towards something useful. As my example showed, the software team have been in control up until now (for 10 years), they made a mess, we will make help them clean it up. They won't thank us for it but the VP will when everything works.

        remember the human tower analogy, as CEO you look down and see smiling faces, the people at the bottom look up & see a-holes standing on their shoulders. Its the same with BAs & developers , its just luck who looks down or up.

              Don't forget architects as well - brain the size of a planet and all that...

              I like being a BA - on same rate as a PM with about 25% of the workload and stress

                  BA / Architect / PM? Write the theme tune, sing the theme tune.

                      Office Space great film.

                      Business Analysis can be very misunderstood, the BA team abused, or they can be well utilised.
                      You can get good BAs and bad BAs.

                      Given its not an unusual occurrence when I head into a client that business have had a bad experience with projects, then I guess poor use of BAs/poor BAs/even poor project management is not unusual. Thankfully after my recent projects the end users have complimented that the project experience has been a lot better.

                      BAs can be useless or useful, just like architects, PMs, etc can be useful or useless.
