Theoretically, the "A" is for "Analyst"

Wednesday morning at work, my BA (business analyst) was to give a training class for the application on which I've spent the last 10 months of my life (to the user acceptance test team).

I have it on good authority that his first words upon launching the application were, "This is the first time I'm looking at this."

And his second statement was, "So, what do you guys want to see?"

Awesome.

Dont you just LOVE it when the people in the "know" know nothing about the application they are to do the training on?

I feel your pain and Im sorry. I can only hope you may have been able to show him up a time (or 3)

Been there, done that! He'll be coming to you in a couple of weeks with complaints about not "liking" the application, because he hasn't taken the time to work with the application, and understand it's functionality - that's what always happens to me!

I can personally guarantee that not all BAs are that bad! I think I'm quite sane!
