Job Shadowing as Part of Interview Process 
I have recently been through an interview process for a business analyst role, i was succesfull at the final interview. The company has requested me to come in for half a day just to experience what the culture is, the company is going live with one of their projects and i have been invited to observe how they work. I would like to find out how best to carry myself and what are the do's and do'nts for a "job shadow as part of the interview process
