Am I a Business Analyst?


I asked Paul Culmsee if he could go to the Perth BA World conference as a speaker.  I had read his blog and his posts on Wicked Problems and Dialogue Mapping grabbed me as interesting and important for the BA community to learn about. (Paul lives in Perth)

He's back from the speaking engagement and has written this provocative piece challenging the BA as a translator metaphor.  I have never liked it, as I see no substantial value in such a role, but I've never quite been able to articulate what was wrong with it.  Now, thanks to Paul, I can.
