The Promenade Trail is intended for managers, project leaders, and supervisors of a team of systems analysts. We also recommend it for those of you who aren’t interested in doing the Project work, but who want to know what systems analysis is all about. It gets its name from the many people who ride chair lifts to the top of mountains, but who have no interest in skiing. For them, to stroll around and enjoy the spectacular scenery is what matters. They have no interest in “guts or glory.”
If you take this trail, your reading order is somewhat different from the other trails. You will not be asked to do any Project work, but we will lead you through the Textbook and, toward the end, some of the case study. This trail is marked by the symbol.
