The interview on the SPaMCAST 69 is with Kevin Brennan.  Kevin and I focused on how the business analysis role fits into the CMMI.  In the process we ended up discussing a wide range of topics from a business analysis point of view.

He led the development of Version 2.0 of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) and was also one of the authors of the CBAP exam. He is a frequent speaker on business analysis, project management, and software quality assurance topics at conferences. Kevin has over a decade of experience as a business analyst and project manager across several industry sectors, including regulated professions, utilities, automobile manufacturing, courier services, and mortgage banking. During this time he has performed just about every task a business analyst could be expected to do, from developing corporate and product strategies to being paged by end-users looking for technical support.

Kevin has taught project management and requirements analysis at Humber College, and has a B.A. degree in History and Political Science from the University of Toronto. He is also a graduate of Second City's improv comedy program.

The essay is a continuation of my essay titled "Traceability: A Radical Approach Based on User Involvement".   Part four discusses the complexity leg of the model.   We are now into the heart of the model and I like your feedback on the assessment categories choosen and the idea in total.
