In his comment, John asked about auditions for a business analyst. The audition will vary, depending on the kind of projects you do. Here are some possibilities:
- For a more serial lifecycle, you could ask a BA to help elicit requirements. You'd listen to the way the candidate interviewed, if the candidate interrupted the speaker, if the candidate asked meta questions.
- For a more agile lifecycle, you could ask the candidate to make user stories from bullet lists of requirements.
- For any lifecycle, ask the candidate to explain his or her favorite way to express requirements. Then take a product and ask the candidate to write down the requirements for that product.
Make sure your audition matches your environment. I might not have described something useful for you, so adapt my suggestions.
