Jinfo Report

Tweet about this item on Twitter


The Jinfo Community session, "Step One to Alignment Between IS and IT", examined in part how to reset our perceptions of IT, as a building block to creating better alignment between the two departments.

This table offers a starting point for recognising the positive aspects of what makes a good IT person, what happens when we experience the "dark side" of those aspects, and what positive actions you can take to help reroute your interactions towards a better working relationship.

Use this worksheet when you need to take a step back from a difficult relationship in order to assess where the pain points are and how to address them, in preparation for an upcoming project with IT, or to keep a positive relationship going.

This document accompanies the article "The Role of Research in Realigning Your Relationship With IT".
