Have you ever thought your PM or BA was infringing on your role in the project? Did you think, "Wait, but that's MY job!"

At times, business analysts and project managers step on each other’s toes, especially when starting a new project. Though their roles and tasks sometimes appear to overlap, they are performed in different contexts. In this presentation, Tamara Copple and Becky Skinner examine the relationship from both viewpoints, look at the context in which each role is performed, and discuss ways to forge a clear path forward to collaborating with joy. Their presentation will kick off with storytelling and perspectives. Then, we will use a virtual Lean-Coffee style session to talk about your own sticky situations.
