Time For IT Guys To Unshackle Corporate Computers
Aug 27th, 2009 @ 6:41am
The trick is to identify where the value is
Assuming that all users will act like monkeys is how the IT department protects itself.
Sure, some users can use their computers effectively, but will require a higher level of cooperation from the IT department.
But what is the IT department's incentive to provide higher service to these users? The IT guy isn't going to be the one getting the bonus/raise/promotion when the user invents a new process.
Meanwhile, for every power user that generates value for the company, you've got five more that have absorbed IT resources that could have been used elsewhere.
