BA Job Switch Advice - Confusion btw Domain 

Hello folks,

I am currently working as BA in Payments (Banking) domain from last 3 years with leading Financial Institution and have overall work experience of 7 years in payments domain.

My experience and exposure in Payments domain is extremely rich and good. In last 3 years, worked on NPP Australia scheme which has provided good learning in the future trend of faster payments.

Confusion - I have been going through round of interviews (on the verge of getting selected) for BA role, however the domain is entirely different i.e Finance - Regulatory Compliance (KYC etc). And the organisation is ready to pay a good considerable hike.

I believe that BA's first positive thing is domain knowledge and my vision is clear to grow in payments domain.

Seeking experts advise, whether I should consider moving to Finance - Compliance domain or stay back in Payments domain ignoring the salary perks.

P.S - The new domain  would be entirely a starter for me.

"The new domain would be entirely a starter for me" - It may be a Domain ... but No Starter in BA. I've been in Consulting for 30+ years and sometimes Never have worked in a Specific Domain ... but asked As/Is and To/Be suggestions and worked at it from there ... There were Plenty of Company Experts that I did meet and get things understood and Clear ... Do Not Be Afraid OF Anything ... they probably need the experience you have to interface with different modules that Other have no experience at .... Good Luck.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
