Project Manager versus Business Analyst

In principle, a PM does not need to know the business process. But in a real project, no matter how big the project is, it's helpful for the PM if he knows the business processes so that he can ensure the project is under control.

How is Project Manager Different from a Business Analyst?

Thank you for the clarification, it's a good first answer.
Who can throw more light on what are the main overlaps and what are the main differences between a project manager and a business analist?

Difference Between Project Manager and Business Analyst

- A qualified business analist should contribute in requirements collection, clarification, documentation, and translate these to function specification. Also she/he needs to verify the result and support uat.
- A project manager will be responsible for the delivery of this project. In the area of reporting and mornitoring, the project manager also needs knowledge of the business requirements.
Hope the above analysis can help to answer your questions.
