Find the IT Innovator Within – HBR

This is a excellent post and describes in my opinion the very reason why Enterprise Architecture is essentially increasing across organisations.

To enable the business to make more decisions and to take the control away from IT themselves to enable a more responsive and flexible IT organisation.

I really like the concept of the “IT Gate” programme. I can see real value in that within a local government situation.

companies need to charter an IT “gifted-and-talented” program (“Gate”) that gives lead users special IT privileges — the best tools, equipment, education, and support — as long as they agree to “first do no harm,” clean up their own messes, and support the less-talented around them.
