Ever get assigned to a project and find the team is working in an odd or awkward way and you are sitting there wondering 'Am I in the right profession?" Business analysts often feel like their own island - especially when they are assigned to teams with little business analysis experience or working for organizations that have immature business analysis practices. Sometimes it feels more overwhelming than it needs to.

Often what is missing is having someone who you can run your ideas and approaches past that can provide you the assurance of how to tackle the immediate problem or how to proceed next.
