BA/SA/BSA Role / Grade / Level classifications 

Hi all,

I am a Business Systems Analyst for a small - medium sized company with a Business Systems team of two (myself and another BSA working under a general ICT manager) and we are looking at trying to implement a role grading classification system. By this, I mean a clarification of the responsibilities and accountabilities of a BSA at the various levels of responsibility and accountability (e.g. Junior BSA, BSA, Senior BSA).

Whilst this type of information is readily available in the Systems Administration side of ICT (provided by SAGE), it is very difficult to find in the Business Analysis or Systems Analysis areas. The IIBA has some brief information, but I was wondering if anybody in a larger organisation that actually have staff at varying levels of accountability would be prepared to share their "role descriptions" for these various levels of employment.

Thanks in advance,

Re: BA/SA/BSA Role / Grade / Level classifications 

Hi Mark,

Given the relative infancy of our profession, these roles don't seem to be very well defined and vary from organization to organization.

Here is a view into the business analyst roles which you may find helpful.

I'd love to hear myself from folks out there as to your own definition and responsibilities for these various roles/titles given to the BA.
