Do most project managers also double as business analysts

0 votes

I notice from most of the projects that I have engaged in that I end up collecting the project requirements and also managing the process of the same with SMEs. In real practice, I have also had to use PMIS to collect, analyze, and present data.

So while I have acquired training in business analysis, I sometimes struggle to see its use in real practice (at least on some of the projects I have worked on)

he roles within a team will be dictated by a company's organization structure and the complexity of the given project. Even in a company where they have defined BA/BSA roles if the project is small or low complexity, the PM or even Business Owner might perform traditional BA-type work although their acumen might lean more towards gathering requirements than eliciting and analyzing them.
