Trying to promote Erlang where I work I find this comment very interesting.

Maybe its the managers I should give a one day course in "modelling" with 
Erlang?
I can't call it programming 'cause that's something they don't do... but 
modelling is
done by them all the time.  How many of you have "sold" Erlang before ? 
Need input!
