Now this might just be my experience, but why would anybody higher a Technical Business Analyst who cant do UX/UI and incorporate that in the BusReq doc, SysDec doc, SysTest doc, UAT doc (utilising a standard, but not limited Watefall metholodology?)?
To me its like saying we now new GANT chart operators as PM’s are capable to drawing a Gant chart (which can be a very fine skill to be fair).
I also wonder if its because I come larger organisations and projects, 150k people in a region, $30m web applications (not APP) etc.
I also dont understand the need for Agile, but that might be because Ive done 5 different PM Methologies and imo the best one is Waterfall run at a RAD Iterative speed. For me Agile reminds me of Itil. A bureaucracy methodology aimed at making jobs not solving problems. Perhaps thats a bit harsh but I do find Agile just a rehash of methologies that can be run in hybrid to be as or more effective. And the naming convention thing, cringe. Needed more thought before ratifying the methodology imo.
Anyway, so lets saw you are a BA and you have been given a UX designer at your disposal, how do you bring in their work in an iteration. ie BRD 1.1.1 “XYZ”, I presume you would use he use case for the UI design as the title and then its function as the BRD so 1.1.1 can be sys developed, sys tested, UAT all using the same numbers.
having been the person putting the wire framing into my projects and the business analyst, thats generally what I do. But Ive never seen a UX Designer in Coprorate Land, but I suspect the way the role is getting its own flavour I may well soon.
Have any PMs, BAs, etc had experience having a UX resource assigned? And do you manage the project iteration and requirements as above?
Also what if you disagree with the UX designer, given they are doing what use to be your job, its bound to happen?
