Great video with many excellent points.
I have lived and validated these values throughout my 17 yrs as an IT professional. I have recently taken a IT management position with a large government contractor. As the "new guy" coming in, I immediately experienced the road blocks with communication between departments. Departments are very segregated, and there is little cross-communication. We seem to find out at the last minute and are forced into a reactive mode instead of being involved from the initial concept phase with projects that have a direct effect on my department. We are forced to use what we are given and make it work, and often within a very limited time frame. It creates much unneeded stress and last minute resource juggling for my team. Any advice on how to breakdown these barriers and get into these meetings with established managers without rocking the boat and looking like the rebel new guy trying to impress, and alienating myself from peer managers? Thanks, Eric
