re: 5 Ways Business Still Fails The IT Organization
It all starts at the top. If the business unit head is not insisting that anytime a business function requires a technology component to whatever they are attempting to accomplish they better be working with the IT functional head or it will be the project initiator who will be called on the carpet then nothing will change. The CEO/president would never allow the head of Marketing to go around Finance or Manufacturing and involve non-company resources to perform those duties to get something done. If the CEO/President is not holding the other departments accountable for the failure to involve IT then IT in that company has no hope of being thought of as anything more than a discreationary, back-office function. Might as well disband the group and outsource everything. In those situations there is no penalty for ignoring IT.
