Does a BA need an specialist skills?

This post at IT Business Edge reminds me of the debate about whether former shoe salespeople should be running the company or whether it's better to put an MBA in the hot seat.

In response to Ann's article David made the comment that the person in the role will lead to success or failure, and while that is true, it's also true that the scale and complexity of an organisation and it's context will drive the need for a jack of all trades versus a specialist.
