re: Obama's IT Transformation Is A Work In Progress
I applaud Obama for taking steps to transform government IT through the initiatives you describe, John. In my experience of consulting at high-profile IT transformation projects, it's not just about developing a smart plan that involves IT, it's mostly about knowing how to get the support of all involved--and to maintain that support. Transformation is never easy and it will always be met with resistance and suspicion. The success of transformation projects depends on your skill as a motivator and a leader--and transformation in governments is never easy.
