UAT – The Clues in the Title

When I see Test Analyst job specs requiring skills in writing UAT scripts, I really don't understand the logic behind this.

The fact that UAT is about the user accepting the software based on their requirements, surely suggests the business users should have this responsibility. If a company is adamant that the tester writes these scripts, then I'm sure they would only be a watered down version of the tests already ran. What is the point in that?

The only time I feel a tester should get involved, is when the business have no or little exerience in writing these test. However, it would only be for guidance.

He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
