Business Analyst

A reader from Pennsylvania writes…  

Analyze and interpret other peoples’ work in order to pass on requirements in order for other people to continue doing said work. You get to tell people what they already know and tell them what they already expect. You get to attend “”Meetings”” that are not much more than stating problems and pawning off the responsibility of fixing said problems to someone who actually knows something and gets paid far more because they actually have a skill/trade.

The Business Analyst is the facilitator of time consuming numbness. As simple as a monkey opening a banana.

What do you think? Is it simple for a monkey to open a banana? Or is it just that it has a lot of practice?
