of each developmental phase but also the results of that phase. This process occurs one step at a time, the documentation and proofing of one step then the next
until the entire system is up and running. The job of the systems analyst, however, doesnt end with the production of a working system. Systems design methodology extends
into perpetuity as the system expands and the needs change. The precise methodology a systems analyst employs in systems development can vary dramatically.
Systems analysts, after all, work in a diversity of industries. They can be employed in businesses ranging from "financial institutions to service companies, manufacturers, consultancies and systems integrators"
(Leinfuss, 1998). The requirements of these industries in terms of systems analysis can vary both according to need and according to the specific job skills of the analyst.
Mark Dundore, director of application development at MIS International Inc., observes that the ideal systems analyst has both programming and analysis skills at their disposal but recruiting the ideal candidate
can be tough: "The old model was, the more senior you got, the more you
