re: 10 Year-End To-Do Items For IT Leaders
AMEN on point 5 - working as part of an IT team that is reactive from the word go is grueling. You never know where the next fire to be put out is going to crop up. Fires will always have to be fought, just a nature of the beast - but when you have on-going projects and programs that are stretching your team already, those fires can cause major productivity losses.

Also a big fan of point 10 - but something to keep in mind is that those further on down the ranks, the guys in the trenches, as it were, really could use some time for themselves and their families as well.
