Myth #1: Technology is the responsibility of my IT department
The problem is that in many cases, IT leaders focus on the latest, greatest software they just read about, not the organization’s objectives. Sometimes, they’re not to blame, as they aren’t included in discussions about the bigger picture and long term goals. But, IT leaders acting in isolation invest in technology for technology’s sake. You can’t afford investments that don’t live up to their promises. You need tools that help you do more with less and directly help you achieve important goals. In the end, this myth can lead to disjointed technology plans that don’t align with goals.
