The department previously known as IT

BrentSheets Brent Sheets Profile: BrentSheets

Overview: “There is a fundamental dilemma in the world of IT: the technical challenges and opportunities have never been greater, but at the same time the role of IT and the role of the CIO has never been questioned more. The relationship between business and IT is in many companies at an all-time low. The model of Alignment that we’ve pursued for more than 20 years in IT doesn’t work anymore. It’s time for change. It’s time for a radical change in the relationship between business and IT. It’s time for Fusion.”
