Business Analysts have to be really good at interpersonal skills. Below are the main reasons:

  • The project often requires them to interact with the clients. How well one interacts with the client, determines the satisfaction levels of the client.
  • A business analyst has to constantly interact with the senior team members and the management people. There has to be professional conduct during these meetings. Good interpersonal skills add a great value to them
    .
  • As a business analyst, most likely you are working in a consulting firm. In such companies the value of interpersonal skills is huge, sometimes even more than your core expertise. Therefore, it has to be considered.
  • Good interpersonal skills help you to build your network as you can comfortably interact with a variety of people. The grown network will help you in business relationships.
  • These skills will help you grow quickly in the corporate world. The interpersonal skills will help you a lot in the long terms.
