What you describe is the painful reality too many have to experience, including me on more than one job.

FWIW, I have been able to make this work in a few organizations. The largest pushback comes from BAs because of the very reasons you cite (the others do, also, but my experience was they pushed back less once they knew they were getting what they wanted).

One tactic that I used successfully was to pick a project that I convinced the management above the BAs would be a "trial run" or "proof of concept". Once management saw how well it worked, they expanded on its usage. That may not work everywhere, but it is worth a try.
