the most common question asked of an analyst is “what do you do?” or “what do you study?”. The first thing we do is to say the first thing that comes to our mind. The second is to think “I don’t know”. The third is to go back to the beginning of the question.
I would never say that I just dont know, but I am quite sure that it is so difficult to know.
The truth is that most business analysts do a lot more than they think, and they often spend more time researching than they do in business management. But the difference between a business analyst and a business manager is that the former is also a person with a life outside of work and the latter is not. I have worked in management and I have known business managers. They are often just people who take pride in what they do and who have a sense of mission.
The sad truth is that business analysts are in a profession that is very easy to get trapped into, and very difficult to leave. When you first begin, you may be pleasantly surprised to find out that there are many, many positions in business management that exist purely to make you miserable. In fact, one of the best ways to get a manager job is to be a business analyst! But at some point you won’t be so lucky.
Business analysts are mostly people who make a living by telling other people what they should be doing. Thats not to say that they have no real skills, but they have little motivation to change and do anything about why they feel they are doing it wrong just because they feel like their boss is looking down their nose at them. Thats why it is imperative that they come to work each day with a clear set of goals.
The problem is that it’s a lot easier to see the problems in your own life and work on them. You need to think about how to fix your own problems and how you are doing something wrong that is causing a conflict with the business owners. You need to make the case for why you are doing something and why it should be done in a way that does not conflict with the business interests.
This is the problem with the business. It’s the one thing that most business owners are afraid of. If your business is going to be successful and get ahead of the curve, you have to be able to think of ways to get ahead. And it’s not really about what to do with it. It’s more about how to get ahead.
It is easier to do than it is to do. You have to have a good business plan and that is how you have to do it. If you don’t have a good plan and a bad one, you are likely to be left out of it.
I mean its not hard, just a simple question of what do you want to do. You just need a good idea and then some work.
You could argue that it’s easier to fail than it is to gain. But the point with business is not just to be a good person. It’s about having a plan and you have to know how to execute that plan. I’ve been through both the “it’s easy” and “it’s hard” schools and I’ve learned that it’s not so easy. And the reason is that people who really want to be in business are not that great at it.
