As an instructor in the Content Strategy Master’s program, I often use metaphors to convey the concepts and ideas that apply to the discipline of content strategy. One metaphor I find myself returning to, over and over again, is the doctor. The doctor is a timeless profession, one that, as children, we learn about and aspire to be. We all have experience as patients, and understand certain truths from our interactions with them. So then, what is the similarities and differences between doctors and content strategists, and where does the metaphor break down?
