Do you know your BA type?

We all know that different BA’s approach doing things in different ways.

Some like to watch first before trying something, others are great at making plans, someone else is best at mitigating risk, another person is great at visualizing, while someone else just jumps right in to what ever task needs doing.

If you play to your subconscious strengths, then any of those approaches can be successful. If you try to be something you are not, then the approach that works for someone else will fail for you.

  1. Hi Gerry,
    thank you for the link. it would be really exciting to discover something new about myself but when I answered the last question I got this error message and nothing happened.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘{‘ in /home2/mayfair2/public_html/reprof/1x34y2g/finalize.php on line 84

    Maybe you should ask your webmaster to fix that issue.

    Anyway, many thanks
