    Cracking read and so very true. I have been doing some work in the Caucuses of late where Business Analysis has yet to break ground and i am doing a lot of training on the subject of Business Process Management and Process Mining. Automation in Business processes here is far from the norm as unfortunately there are to many people and not enough jobs. However, it's still a worthwhile exercise to train the younger generation in the tools and techniques of today.

    #1 @John Whitehead, that is an interesting question, and not an easy one to answer. I consider the ability to be trusted and to trust a soft skill, because it can be learned. As I outlined very briefly in my article, there are specific things you can do that will repair or build trust - the former being much more difficult. We've all met people we immediately knew were not to be trusted, but we've also all met people who were not to be trusted who could build trust in order to con their victims. They did so by learning to engender trust.

    I do see a lot of validity your argument, however. This is probably one of those agree to disagree things, but your case is quite good.

    For good or bad, one of my unique abilities is that I can go into incredibly bad situations and fix them, like the example above. For a while, I found it irksome that I was always being assigned to projects that were in trouble, until I realized that being trustworthy and being able to cut through negative nonsense were *skills* I should take advantage of and embrace. If they were just personality traits, it wouldn't take the effort that it does.

    Interesting post on the backbone of the skills and characteristics of Business Analysts, @Jared Wiese. I agree that there really is a mindset that should be present of being willing to show up and dive into a project from ground zero without preconceived notions apart from the deliverables that one has been entrusted to execute for the project.

    Having spent 18 years doing this work, I also question the 'specialist' roles. Which goes along with my questioning of how useful memorization is - i.e. passing a certification test - when it comes to the complex thinking required to execute most projects in a business. Hiring based on certifications really downplays the human communications part of being a business analyst - and it is huge. Apart from being able to learn on the fly, the bulk of the role is about being able to be the person bouncing back and forth between all sorts of business experts, technical resources, and management sponsors cross-pollinating information, questions, deadlines, issues, show-stoppers, and constant progress updates.

    I always get a chuckle when I trot out my interview metaphor. I am like self-leveling cement on a project, I smooth out all the gaps on the floor of the project to make sure the foundation is solid and level in order to build the completion of the deliverable on time, budget, and with as many features as feasible.

    First @Jeffrey Strickland, let me say that I am so happy to see you here on beBee! This is a community I believe you will truly thrive and having someone who so aptly explains analytics, statistics, and all the other mathematical magic that you perform is the ultimate 'honey pot' Now for the post:
    "Analytics is best performed by people who do not have presuppositions about the problem or the data". This statement is along the lines of what I truly believe is extremely important for analytics that serve the purpose for which they are developed. I've crossed industries in my own career and have found that my NOT knowing a lot about the company or industry at the start served as an advantage. The work I did focused primarily on data analysis and the processes that created the data so the most important question I asked was Why? It always uncovered some unusual and sometimes scary answers. Thank you Jeffrey! Welcome, welcome!

It is number 1 software development tool built for every member of your software team to plan, track, and release software. With Jira you can see how much time developer spent on each user story, what he is working on right now and what he is going to do next. All stakeholders of the project can access Jira and track the progress, giving feedback. If you haven't used one of those two, I highly recommend you to start using them, they changed my life. They increase productivity of the team, motivation and make everyone more organized. And what is very important is that your working process is 100% transparent, you as a manager or product owner can see what each of your team members have done , doing and will do. Clients feel more relaxed because they can access Jira whatever time and have control over what is going on. Close
