ProjectWorld * BusinessAnalystWorld
Toronto 2008

Thank you for being part of this!

It’s been a hectic couple of weeks with ProjectWorld * BusinessAnalystWorld in Toronto in mid-April and Project Summit & BusinessAnalystWorld in Philadelphia this week. But it has been an enjoyable couple of weeks meeting new and old associates, hearing great speakers and being exposed to exciting new ideas.

And we have another exciting Business Analyst Times for you. Glenn Brûlé continues his Back to Basic series with episode two, Second Fundamental: Creating a Common Vocabulary, in which he discusses the old bugbear – communication and the positive or negative impact it can have on the project. Robert Wysocki wonders if it might be worth considering merging the BA and PM functions into one. Always sure to make people sit up, he puts forward his ideas in Is it Time for the BA and the PM to Get Hitched? Sandra Lavoy looks at what it takes to retain good IT people and Natasha Terk revisits the subject of e-mail with Ten Tips for Writing Effective E-mail Messages.

Our bloggers are back in fine form with their distinctive views – and not always agreeing! Check them out and take sides or sit on the fence. Either way, let us know what you think.

Best Regards,
