You have heard that hindsight is 20-20 but what you will also learn in this article is that insight can be equally as effective because it helps you see the impact of changes before they are implemented.
Face it; as a business analyst, you have experienced changes in software features, systems or business procedures that created confusion or hindered your ability to do your job.
Therefore, you understand the anxiety or frustration of users whose job duties will be impacted by major changes in their systems, right?
This question about the value of networking in one’s career was submitted by Reba from (Olympia, Washington). Here is Reba’s question:
I have a strong interest in entering the business analyst field as a career path, however, it is very difficult to access this field as a state government worker.
Many individuals have entered this field by knowing someone or networking.
They do not always know what their job duties are and do not deliver a good product to the customer, so to ensure I do not go down that path, I would like to make sure I receive training, exposure to the business analyst field to include hands on experience.
If You Are Alive, You Want More Money! or you’ve been thinking of ways to increase your salary as a business analyst … yes, you have.
If you’re human and still breathing, what you get paid and how to make more money crosses your mind ever so often.
For good or bad, it is human nature to always want more.
We want more money, more love, more space, more friends and more fun.
This can be a bad thing, if it becomes an obsession that overtakes the desire to do a good job.
