Topic Teasers Vol. 82: Balancing Business Analysts

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: After being team lead for our Customer Operations business unit transformation project, I’ve been offered a position to head the new department. It will now also include Information Technology (IT). Here’s my issue up front: I’m a traditional project manager and now I’ll have nine business analysts and an agile IT team to lead. Who is responsible for what on projects now? I need to figure this out fast.
A. Business analysts replace project managers, so once you assign a BA to a project, your work is over. All you will need to do is help referee the conflicts between the BAs and the IT teams.
B. If your business analysts are trained and certified, they’ll know their own roles or can adjust quickly to what you want them to do. The agile IT team should be fairly self-directed. All you need to understand is who does what, present the responsibility chart and stand back ready to support them if needed.
C. Agile teams do not need any supervision or direction over and above their own ScrumMaster, who is 100% devoted to one project at a time. Ask your BAs if they will cross-train as ScrumMasters to maximize the number of projects you can run at any one time.
D. Due to the new strategic and business requirements from PMI, project managers have now been renamed. Just have your newly christened business analysts do what project managers have always done.
