In the “conversations” that introduce the textbook chapters thus far, Lucas Massey, the IT Director, tends to get a lot of pressure from his colleagues at GearUP. He has suggested approaches that do not align with the company’s strategy, and several times, when he has attempted to explain his perspective, he and his co-workers get frustrated.
In your opinion, what is the source of this frustration? Do MIS/IT professionals “speak a different language”? How might this course help prevent this sort of frustration in your job experience?
The source of frustration is lack of alignment of the Information Technology function with the predefined business strategies and approaches at the company.
“Yes”, it clear that since the MIS team has a different set of strategies, then they are speaking a different language.
Using the skills gained in this course it will be easy for me to manage a situation like this in my job experience. In simple terms, I will just employ quality communication and teamwork skills to ensure that we as a team speak one a language. In addition, to ensure that the targeted MIS ends up a successful project, I will involve most of the key company stakeholders (both I.T professionals and other workers or targeted users of the system) in the development and implementation of the MIS. Lastly but certainly not the least, I will work closely with all the team members to ensure that the MIS goes hand in hand with the business strategies of the company (Oz 58).
