  • Description:

    This is a recording of the live webinar with George Westerman that occurred on July 26, 2012.

    In many companies, the relationship between IT departments and business leaders is like a troubled marriage: miscommunication is rampant, which leaves executives struggling to improve the situation. Listen to this 60-minute webinar to learn how MIT Sloan research demonstrates the improved IT performance and IT/business relationship that results from IT/business transparency.

    George Westerman, MIT Sloan senior research scientist and author of the recent Wall Street Journal article, "IT Is From Venus, Non-IT Is From Mars," demonstrates how transparency can help to establish trust between business executives and IT leaders; make better IT investment decisions; ensure IT projects deliver more value; and identify new strategic uses for IT.

    This webinar will help managers and IT professionals think differently and communicate better with each other, and arm them with real-life examples they can use to improve their organizational processes through transparency and clarity.
