The business analyst “career ladder”

I have answered the question of where the business analyst goes after a successful business analysis career, other than retirement, several times in the past, but the question becomes relevant again over time as the profession evolves.  The "ladder" still leads directly to the executive suites in any number of positions. Considering the business analyst is the corporate problem solver and generally is quite versed in both the business processes and practices and the application of IT to support or drive those business processes and practices, the Business Analyst is in a prime position to help the company move forward, make decisions, and lay out strategies for the future.   Intermediate steps on the ladder include senior positions in an organization's PMO (or equivalent), product manager, and director positions.
