Communicating with people in languages they understand

For many years I have run foul of SW developers how have migrated into Architectural roles - but want to continue to use the techniques and languages suited to the role of OO SW development.

Open Group advocates are often some of worst as many are committed to UML - a language manifestly unsuited to communicating with most business people most of the time.

I recently read this: And saw these comments:

"To achieve business-IT alignment, architects need some way of understanding what the business is really about. ...

We need to talk to business people to understand what the business architecture is, but the business people don’t want to talk tech-speak. ...

We need to be able to talk to them in their language, but addressing an architectural end. "

And I wonder when the penny will drop that this language isn't UML.
