Mia Lebel in Queens, New York said: Honestly, I find not much difference between these two titles. In a mid size company, I think one person manages both these roles.
Could someone enlighten me the difference between these two jobs?
Thanks in Advance!
There is lot of Difference between Business Analyst & Project Manager
Project Manager : Responsible for Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring & Controlling & Closing of the project.
Business Analyst : Is the SME for the Application to be developed. BA is the liason between the developers & SME/ Business .
PM hires BA
During the closing phase the PM releases the BA.
PM reports to Management / PMO office
BA reports to BA team lead / PM
PM is very big role he has to oversee all the aspects of projects Viz ., Cost, schedule, scope Management along with Quality, HR, Risk & procurement areas .
a BA role is limited when compared to PM .
PM has better things to do than doing BA's role.
Hope this clarifies your doubts to a certain extent.
