BA A.K.A Waiter.... ?????

So discussing BA's roles & responsibilties with some one who has been a BA himself and is into training potential Business Analysts these days, some thing came up which was'nt totally digestable , so its related to food if you cant digest it, right..??
yeah you bet..
Yeah so as a waiter co-ordinates between the customer and cook passing on the requirement of the customer to the cook in whatever requirement gathering format (usually a pen and a pad)..similary the BA does the co-ordination effort passing on the exact information regarding the requirements of the customer to the the client and developers / coders/ testers etc..

Right.. Nothing wrong with that example..but why it made me write it in the blog was coz of my personal experience when i was going to school... . i worked in an indian restraunt in Redmond,WA for a few days.. before i realised it wasnt my cup of tea and i was made for more delicate jobs rather then 12 hour long hardships...

Ironically (??) life has almost come a full circle from a waiter to a Business Analyst... i Never thought about it alright but well... way to go perhaps...
Just that this example made me smile and recall those moments.. Yeah..

"Are you ready for the order yet"
"Would you like some thing to drink"
"Shall i get you a ToGo box? "
"Here is your cheque sir"

Right... didnt i learn all those terminology and more by heart... yeah am a diligent worker.. weather a BA or a Waiter, after all job is job and one has to keep performing and improving the skills...
