This is where my lack of other development processes (building construction, sales, marketing .ect) gets muddy.

The "traditional" way does work, followed by a sentence of the requirements that fits in.

The improved solution, does work, for certain situations.

Keep in mind, there are people that have worked 20+ years in solely one or the other ways, and might not easily see another way of doing it.

The improved solution looks to tackle some of these BUSINESS issues.
- time, cost, innovation

If you have lots of small projects and some longer projects, a BA can be a big help to shift low cost work out of the time of a programmer.

Also having a programmer at the early stage can help cut through a day or 2 of delay getting a 3 day project finished because they can answer the quick questions, at the expense of them working on some other work

In short, if you have a single long focused project, some middle people might not be needed.
If you are doing lots of short projects, middle people might help.

(a lot of "might" words - people are people and not all people are created the same, but are equal so I don't know how this maths is supposed to work?)
