The IT Industry is currently at a tipping point which if embraced will allow it to fully become instrumental in the facilitating the growth of the business that it is housed within. Will this tipping point require IT staff to think differently? is it a change away from the traditional IT skills? How do we position our IT teams to embrace this?
Business leaders have to be seen to take radical decisions to cut costs to maintain their personal reputation in the market. Understanding and meeting their needs dictates a radical new way of thinking about how to make business cases for change. There is good news for the IT industry in the results of eight years of case studies using this new approach, but it requires a 180° shift in outlook for some people in the industry.
