Travel Tipps for Analysts
Michael Stal proposed to send Market Analysts to some lonely island. I partly agree - but decision-makers in our industry (as in many others!) are NOT engineers, so they cannot evaluate technology based upon programming experience and technical risks. So we might end up sending decision-makers into a similar direction - what might end up in contraproductive vacuum, although programmers would surely love it (only until the end of the current project budget ... ).
I'll love Micha's conclusion:
"Why do you think, these guys have become market analysts and not software engineers?"
