The blog post "Where have all the agents gone" by Seth Godin prompted recurring questions for me;
How is it that there are requirements managers still out there when all they do is transport requirments from users/stakeholders to the development team?
What value do these peple add beyond saving you the pain of filling in corporate templates?
How should a business analyst (or product owner or customer advocate) contribute to the reqirements management process?
Where is the value you are adding?
