Re: CDO turf
could not agree more, sometimes I see in boardrooms everyone spend's more time talking about it... but do not do anything about it... only talk, talk, talk...

Re: CDO turf
StaceyE, you are right. Ability to unlearn is even difficult that learning something in the first place and people who are able to learn that skill, higher managers are ready to offer them new roles.

Re: CDO turf
Ashish, there aren't many. However, I work for an organization where ownership has no involvement in management. All they do is attend quarterly board of governance meetings and that's it.

Re: CDO turf
Waqas,

Is'nt that easier said than Done?

How many Owners have you met who have an Off-Hand Attitude?

You know just Hire a Good Professional Manager and then Step Back.

Its so so tough to get these kind of Owners.I am sure they are there but they are just hard to find in real life.

Re: CDO turf
Ashish, true. Large corporations cannot effectively run unless they have decision makers other than the owners. Owners just need to ensure that decision makers are capable and they understand owners' objectives.

@ Batye

Change is inevitable. If a person can't roll with the changes they won't get far. You still see people that are set in their ways in the workforce, but they are usually the ones staying in the same place and never moving up the ladder.

@ Batye

Yes, you always have to plan for the unexpected. If you don't acknowledge in the beginning of the project that there will be unforeseen challenges along the way, the project could be doomed for failure from the get-go.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
