Business Analysis 2015: The Hollywood Syndrome - It's Not About You
by Kevin Brennan
Over the years, I've heard this complaint too many times to count. Business analysts struggle to get more time to develop their requirements, get recalcitrant stakeholders to attend elicitation sessions, and to get requirements approved. Study after study has shown that poor requirements development and management processes are one of the leading causes of project failure, and yet nothing ever seems to change.
