I think we should also look at the levels here and why the skill only applicable at level 4 and above

• Still see use of model office or formalised user trials in some deliveries, depending on sector. Often see business process testing done as part of UAT.
• Where Agile methods used, much more focus on meeting user requirements via user story and journey definitions during development.
• Useability testing now often seen as part of NFT activity rather than business process testing, particularly as this is now more likely to be tools based (accessibility, visual impairment etc), and is actually covered in USEV.

From Angela Martland based on a review of skills associated with the Testing profession.
