In my 15 years in IT, I’ve been both a Project Manager and a Business Analyst and it’s my intention with this book to share with you my experience and what I’ve learned about these two roles.
It is NOT my intention in this book to explain in detail what both a BA and a PM do, what tools and techniques they use and best practices and tricks. These will be addressed in respective series of books.
