The Business-Technology Weave

The Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP)

I was introduced to a great bunch of people a few months ago, and I finally made one of their meetings. 


Here’s the site for the AITP.  Toward the middle-top of the landing page, simply select “Chapters,” (or click Chapters – I’m so good to you!)   then select your state and city. 


In my case, I’m near Columbus, Ohio.  I spent close to three hours there this past Wednesday evening – and still wanted more.  There was a range of professional people:  From academia to private business; from senior management to tech types; and folks of all ages.  In taking full stock of technology’s delivery to business, with associated requirements and engagements, you couldn’t have asked for a more diverse, representative, and smart group. 


There is simply no substitute for getting out of your own myopic box – that is, your organization, your travails, your granular wins, losses, and pressures – in engaging with intelligent and knowledgeable people.  (And, I’m susceptible to “silo’ing” too).


We gain the benefit of hearing about all sorts of experiences, solutions, challenges…  methods for persevering; what works and what doesn’t.  And, there’s a fair measure of humor to be had… who can’t use that when lifting, sweating, and sometimes dancing in The Business-Technology Weave?   :^ )


Kudos to the chapter’s President, Cara, and all involved.  If you’re in the Columbus, Ohio area, stop in at the next meeting.  Drag along your boss, co-workers, a friend or two from another organization…  If you’re “IT,” get a business counterpart to come… and vice-versa for “business” people.


If we’re lucky, we’ll see each other there – I’ll look forward to it.  I would like to hear about your solutions… your overall challenges.


The Association of Information Technology Professionals – regardless of location, check out your local chapter. 


I think you’ll be very happy you did.
