Most Business Analysts deal with software development. Regardless of if they work in finance, government, medical, or another field, we commonly help design software solutions. But you can also apply the BA skillset to non-technical roles.
Skills such as facilitation, problem solving, socratic questioning, and communication are needed across industries and in roles as diverse as sales, marketing, customer relations, and CEO.
