In the audit function, the audit trail is the most important item to be disovered. The ability to see HOW and WHY a transaction occured can lead to the acceptance or denial of the transaction. Adequate documentation from minutes of meetings to the actual check that was written provide this trail.

The same applies to the development process. Having documentation of everything that is said from requests to clarifications to the final 'YES' are all important pieces of this.

Without documentation, development processes tend to drag on and get lost in the ethereal fog of 'what did they say?'

Interesting would you propose to "attach" such documentation to the transaction record?

I am a 10+ year IT professional. I have had multiple experience in various areas of IT -- design, network, helpdesk, databases, VBA programming, etc. As I try to re-enter the workforce after a recent health break, I find it rather infuriating that people will not look at my total skill set and opening up to other avenues.

I have years of experience in Accounting and Taxation. This experience leads me to training as an analyst. This added to my IT skills would suggest that I would be valued with my data gathering skills.

Does anyone else find this a problem? That specialization has its pitfalls?
