I have seen the following in a job offer: "The Business Analyst is expected to determine an appropriate IT strategy, potential IT solutions and support the submission into the T&R cycle."

Does anyone known what the T&R cycle is? Never heard of it and googling does not help.

I would expect that to be the "test and release cycle". It sounds like someone inadvertently put some company-specific jargon in a job ad, though, that's not a term I've ever come across before.

Makes sense. Thanks! – JVerstry Jun 21 '12 at 15:28
Or, if the testers are too strict, perhaps a "test and reject" cycle! :-) – Jerry Coffin Jun 21 '12 at 23:14
@JerryCoffin - Well, it does make the job a bit easier if you merely have to support the submission of IT solutions to a test and reject cycle :-). Much easier to come up with an appropriate strategy and potential solutions-- think of all the time they'd save by not worrying about ever having to release the solutions! – Justin Cave Jun 21 '12 at 23:19
