Review:

I highly recommend this as a resource for individual BAs to buy and use. Few people define a career path for themselves instead they end up jumping from job to job without any clear direction in mind. This material is an opportunity to take control of your career.-Jennifer Banzon, President, IIBA Los Angeles Chapter

I am really liking the content and the style. Compared to other books I have read on the subject, this is providing more in the way of a context for the information. This is essential as I can relate the information to my role. Other books have tended to focus on the technical elements in isolation.-Thomas Kitto, Business Systems Analyst at Ventura
