Re: Business and Tech Leadership Collaboration
I agree -- that is a very good point. Without that kind of business focus, IT can't be more than an order taker, which at best is not maximizing the execution potential. Kind of the difference between  a "top chef" and a cashier at McDonalds. Thanks for your feedback.

Business and Tech Leadership Collaboration
I have found that if you don't have a fully engaged business partner with a vested interest in the project, technology leadership can only go so far.  In large organizations, the stakeholders often move from one roll to another, consistency is lost and program communication becomes more complex.  Poor execution is just the result.
