“The post holder is responsible for explaining to the business how the software solution meets the business needs.”
Erm… Call me old fashioned but shouldn’t it be patently obvious to the customer how the software solves their pain?
This just stinks of requirement Rc.03 is completely met by feature F027…
Which is just another way of IT hitting the users over the head about changed or ambiguous requirements.
‘Here is the email (from 9 months ago) where you asked IT to include a date field, and here is the label that contains todays date. Done, requirement complete, tested correct, finished, this label here meets your need.’
‘What do you mean you want to edit the date? why? Your business process is wrong, You should have told us’… etc etc
Rapidly followed by
‘You asked for a date field, we provided one, if you want that to be editable that is an enhancement and is chargeable, and we can’t look at it for at least 3 months.’
That’s not the kind of role I am currently looking for. Thanks
Although maybe I shouldn’t be so picky, its pretty quiet out at the moment. Maybe I should stop emailing my CV and use the Elfmail instead. I’ll put a copy up the chimney tonight and see what happens. Seems to have worked for the kids.
