Lack of IT vision from senior management

By Adrian Smith ·
I am an IT Manager in a department of 1 - me! For a company with approximately 200 workstations multiple locations and a heavy reliance on IT - I, and many people I have talked to think this is crazy. The odd thing is that even with this limited suppoprt structure there is no vision or suppport from upper management. Usually in mid-size companies with limited IT support they make up for it by having strong policies and a concise vison of IT and its role within the company.

I think a thereneeds to be some way to bring these issues to the attention of senior management in these mid-size companies. Without some proper direction and parameters for IT then these companies will never see a real return on their investment. I have gotten so tired of running into the same brick wall everytime I try to bring "big picture" solutions to the table.

Lack of Technology Vision common

Unfortunately this is common in many companies, small, medium, and large.

It is why most telecom services providers are hurting today.

Many execs do not understand the value of strategic thinking, strategic thinking itself, or why strategic investments in technology can be very valuable to the organization.

There's always the option of last resort

When you're overworked, unappreciated, and feel taken advantage of (and from the sounds of it you're all3), find another job. My experience with management is that they rarely , if ever, change their philosopy on operations. Do yourself a favor and move on down the road.
