BAs and PMs in the same team, or separate? 

In my organisation, the BAs and PMs all sit within the Project Management Office. As we work closely together on projects, this has historically worked well for us. However, I know that in many organisations, the BA and PM teams are separate - just wondered if anyone has any comments on this as an alternative approach? The good and bad!

Re: BAs and PMs in the same team, or separate? 

Hello HannahBBA,

 

I have worked in both scenarios – BA / PM, both within the PMO and both working in a separate structure. More or less, in my experience there was not much of a difference as the end-goal being project go-live. When both work in a BAU environment with no PMO, at times BAs have to prioritise BAU issues over their current projects which could lead to derailment of project time-lines and pushing milestones. This could lead to temporary chaos which eventually is sorted as all stakeholders are informed and the project time-lines are realigned.

Kind Regards,

Hims

On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
