Re: Business Analyst

Dear All,

Should we as a company employ a full-time business analyst (BA) or hire an external one?

This has been argued vehemently as the topics for hiring a full time analyst were such like: cheaper than external BA; internal BA might have knowledge of how the company functions/activities works etc, hence develop Functional specifications quicker.  The topics against having a full-time BA were like the BA might lack/not employ the best design interface or even lack innovative design skills for system design etc.,

The external BA might bring vast experience.

I really want to see you views.  It seems that my colleagues tried to argue that the functional specification should be written by the external software house who "must have the experience and best knowledge".

PLEASE ADVICE

Regards,

Carmel

It really is something only you can decide. I say go with a full time person.

Re: Business Analyst 

Hi Guys,

                 Well come to forum site.We personally feel that if the BA is full time. We then the Functional Specification could be submitted to various software firms to the get a price estimate.  If we however, we hire an external BA, We then the ideas might still be 'blinkered' with the methodology, language etc that is software firm might use.

Thanks.....................

 Challenges in Implementation:     I’m a strong believer of putting finishing touch to any initiative. Project Initiation is always tough and complex and need lots of research but if BA is unable to give the finishing touch then he is not done yet. So, I thought to put few of my views, challenges and observations during...
