Burning Questions for Business Analysts

Holy smokes! You've been anointed with the title of "business analyst" – and naturally, you're wondering "What next?" Or, even more shocking, you suddenly find that the business analysis duties for the project have been unceremoniously dumped on your desk, in addition to your regular duties. What's the best way to proceed?

You're in luck – we've been there, done that, and we want to provide some insight and wisdom to help you get off on the right foot. We've answered some of the Burning Questions we've heard from people when they're new to business analysis. The answers will help you get a handle on a business analyst's duties. The premium 'Burning Questions' on this page have been made open access to all Guests and Site Members, because we know how important it is to get off to a good start.
