a: business ~
b: a leaky bucket

What:

"A business is like a leaky bucket, it may still work but you have to make a whole lot more trips. If your business is leaking money then you'll have to sell more to keep up. It's far easier to plug the leaks than to keep going back to the well."

a: business cycle ~
b: surfing

What:

"I tell my coaching clients that riding a business cycle is like surfing. When the surf is up, you feel invigorated and energized. When you miscalculate and miss a wave or worse yet, get crushed by a wave, you need to learn to get up, brush yourself off and start surfing again."

a: Business analyst ~
b: a football coach

What:

"A business analyst is like a football coach. A good football coach does not dictate the player's every move. Instead he coaches, guides and encourages the players to liberate their strengths. A manager has to inspire his team in such a way that he manifests his own vision in them. He gives them a compelling cause to accomplish missions. These are the blocks on which business models are made. A business analyst course trains you to be coach for the enterprise you work for. "

a: Business analyst ~
b: a translator

What:

"As an analyst, I run between the business and the solution providers, acting as a liaison between the two. I study situations, listen to complaints, research possibilities, and re-state the desired outcome. In some ways a Business Analyst is like a translator, able to communicate in a user's language and technical language. A Business Analyst is also a politician, trying to offend no one."

a: Business analyst ~
b: being a student of life

What: "Being a business analyst is like being a student of life. You learn new things every day. Even when you don't know about one thing, people expect you to provide recommendation, a solution and guidance for business to excel. How do you provide recommendation when you don't have any experience in that area? You learn. Before you do any analysis, walk around, ask people, visit your IT people, sales or operation. Ask them anything, learn from them. Once you have some idea, create your hypothesis and prove it using data. If your hypothesis is wrong start it all over again."

a: Enterprise business analyst ~
b: Virgil, guiding a quivering Dante

What: EBA is the bridge across the abyss. If Here is the Inferno and There is Paradise, then the Enterprise Business Analyst is like Virgil, guiding a quivering Dante along the precipitous crevices of change...." ..........This article is a really nice discussion of a systematic approach to analyzing the IT structure of a large organization. The Dante analogy is the best of the best in terms of linking 2 disparate spheres.
