UML and BA 
Hi, I just wanted to get some opinions on how important you all feel UML knowledge is for a BA. Maybe on a scale of 1 - 10. Thanks,

Maybe UMNL helps you along with this, but there are a million other modelling tchniques and pretty much any one will do, as long as you are an effective communicator and an analytic/structured thinker.

These are precisely the questions my 8 BAs team and I tried to answer this year. The result was a surprisingly efficient pair of surveys we developed and ...
