Building a Successful Project Manager and Business Analyst Relationship

Webinar | Seminar


Have you ever wondered why projects need a BA and PM? Do you know the similarities and difference between a BA and PM? Have you ever been on a project where you have played the Project Management Business Analyst role? In today’s environment and with each new project an understanding of the importance of both roles is necessary. It is important for project managers (PMs) and business analysts (BAs) to build strong working relationships based on mutual respect and understanding of each other’s work. A strong partnership between these two roles can significantly increase the likelihood of project success. Understanding how to balance the key elements of each role is required when one person is tasked to play the dual Project Management Business Analyst role.
