Technical vs. non-technical PM redux

I am always fascinated by the ongoing debate of which is better, the technical or non-technical Business Analyst or Project Manager. That's why I just had to let you all know about this article by Tom L. Barnett, PMP over on It's an excellent addition to the discussion that I think really captures why it is such a difficult topic to resolve.

You can find examples of success on both sides of the argument as well as examples of failure. Mr. Barnett takes a closer look at two examples and in my opinion makes a compelling case for his conclusion. It's about the people, not the process or the domain.

What do you think?
