What will be a written test doing? 

Hi all,

I am going to attend an interview next week for a BA position. The interview will have two parts. first part is oral , and the second part is Written test - Scenario Style. It will take about 1 hour or more.

I have not done a written test for a BA position interview before. Can any experienced BA tell me nomally what the Written Test will be and especially what is this Scenario Style? What preparation should I do for it.

Will appreciate any kindly advice. Thanks.

Janet,

Obviously I don't know exactly what they will be asking you but I have just been produced for my current contract 2 scenario based interview questions designed to take around 20-30 minutes each (one for experienced and trained BA and one for experienced but untrained BA).

If you want to email me at [email protected] and I will send them to you - but tell me first who your interview is with just in case it is the organisation I have written the tests for!

Janet,

I sent you the papers yesterday but I notice you have a Yahoo email account - my sister's Yahoo email account treats mail from my domain as spam so please check your spam folders if you haven't received it.

Any problems let me know and I can resend. Let me know when you are ready for the answers!

Guy

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
