Job Shadowing as Part of Interview Process 
I have recently been through an interview process for a business analyst role, i was succesfull at the final interview. The company has requested me to come in for half a day just to experience what the culture is, the company is going live with one of their projects and i have been invited to observe how they work. I would like to find out how best to carry myself and what are the do's and do'nts for a "job shadow as part of the interview process

I recommend you wear a hat with a propeller on top and interrupt them constantly with questions!

Just be yourself, observe and keep out of the way. Maybe take notes and ask intelligent questions afterwards.

*FJC

Elements of process mapping creep into process discovery, restricting an absolute dichotomy between the two. However, the critical differentiator between mapping and discovery lies in the distincti...
