Why I Joined The Analogies Project:

“In my work on technology projects, I find myself spending a lot of time ‘translating’ technical aspects of information technology into language that is more easily understood by non-technical, business stakeholders. Stories and analogies are my preferred tools for this kind of translation so when I found out about the Project, I knew I’d found kindred spirits and was drawn in immediately.”
