Topic: Business Analysts and Developers: Dance or Smack Down
Abstract: Business Analysts and developers work closely together. Are your interactions dances where each participant knows their steps and move in time with the music of the project? Or are your interactions more like smack downs characterized by blaming, criticizing and finger pointing? Or is it a combination of both? Join IIBA RTP as Priti Acharya talks with development team leaders. Bring your stories of success or areas for improvement so that we can score a 10 on the BA / dev can dance show!
