One of the most prevalent stereotypes about executives and managers is that they spend their time playing golf while their teams toil away doing the real work. Lots of executives do play golf and many of them use it as a creative way to conduct meetings with partners and clients. However, I'm wondering how much the stereotype extends to IT managers and executives. I'd like to know how many of the IT executives and IT managers in the TechRepublic audience play golf.
Do you think doing a meeting with a client or a partner over a game of golf is a legitimate way of doing business? Join the discussion.
