Your IT department and Jurassic Park
Technology is easier than ever to buy. Because of that, we see organizations buying technology before thinking about how their people are going to use it. The cart is coming before the horse. In other words, Technology is coming before Business.
Your IT team is like the scientists in Jurassic Park. Just because they CAN buy technology doesn't mean that they SHOULD.
Think about the humans, what their problems are, and the ROI you expect from a technology project before you buy ANYTHING!
