My good friend Jared Gorai @thepassionateba wrote a great chapter for our book The BA Book of Mentors entitled “It’s All About the Plan” In it, Jared pleads the case for good solid planning of the requirements gathering phase of every project. Typically, he points out, BAs will not plan their work well and miss steps and even miss key stakeholders. Bad news. Worth a read.
I have been watching a friend struggle recently as she tries to manage a team of people who were not engaged. Read… ‘they really didn’t care’. The result is demoralizing
