BA: To do this project properly we really have to add features A, B and C. And we should also deliver D and E for the users.
PM: But our budget is only 1 million simoleons
BA: Everything adds value in the long run and should pay for itself.
PM: And we have to finish by midnight. How can we get all this work done? Find some corners and cut them.
BA: I am not going to short-change these people. I have to live with the consequences of the product we deploy. I have a reputation I have to maintain. These people trust me and I am not going to sell them out.
PM: Well, what can we do? Take longer? Blow the budget?
BA: Look, I'm not the one who sold them on an unrealistic plan.
PM: The plan wasn’t unrealistic, until you came along and started to bloat the requirements...
BA: The get another business analyst. I don't need to be here.
PM: Well, I need a BA, and (grudgingly) you are pretty good at it.
BA: Ha! So you need me then.
PM: I guess so, but what can we do?
BA: I have a plan...
PM: That's ridiculous! It's way outside the scope of this project.
