(Ab)using personas to model managers, programmers and other stakeholders....

Hi,

personas and mental models are great tools for
interaction design. But interaction designers
themselves interact with other stakeholders,
like managers, programmers, marketing, QA etc.
They all haver their goals and mental models
of the process of creating software.

Has anyone here created personas for the
stakeholders interaction designers have to deal
with?

For me this seems like an obvious use case for
personas and mental models.

I'd like to ask the list about anonymous comments. I'm sure the
collective wisdom of the list has plumbed the question, figured out the
fors and againsts of registration for commenting and has opinions. This
for me is coming out of a real-world situation with Found|Read, a site
that uses PublicSquare which requires everyone to register or log in to
leave a comment.
