	Historically (in the days when COBOL was king) you had systems
analysts who analysed business systems and decided what programs needed to
be written, designers who designed those programs and programmers who wrote
the code.

	Around the time I came into the industry it had collapsed to 
analyst/programmers who designed things and wrote the hard bits and
programmers who wrote the rest.
