    Great post @kevin-pashuk! I can not agree more!

    Today from a business perspective, the IT has moved from a technical/support role to a strategic role.

    There are a couple of aspect I would add to your reflexion. First, it is very important in terms of governance, to move the IT department below the CEO/GM position, and can not be considered anymore as part of the financial department. While IT remain bellows the CFO, they will be considered a "cost department" and not a "strategic one",

    The second one, is to avoid Shadow IT behaviour, the CIO/CTO/IT manager need to open his mind, listen & seduce. Listen to understand the different need of the different part of the business and act as a catalyst of the business. Seduce because a business need structure and system needs to be adopted by everyone, here project and change management skills are key.
