The role of the business analyst in software development is to be the bridge between clients, users and development teams. To succeed in this role you should have a natural analytical way of thinking and be able to explain difficult concepts to non-technical stakeholders.

Continuous professional development:

This is a dynamic role with a diverse set of responsibilities, including the following:

Learning how to create elicit and capture functional specification details in visual spec
