74. A New Breed of IT Manager - Embracing Change

Starring: Debbie Baird (Group IT manager at Briggs Marine & Environmental Services)
Episode Type: Case Study


Debbie has had quite a different career journey than probably a majority of IT Managers, but this has put her into a position to maybe look at the role a bit more objectively and help her identify what is needed today and into the future and how this role can be a major change agent in many organisations. 

IT Managers have grown up with constant change, but we often do not realise how this resilience can be of major benefit to help our organisations survive and thrive in these uncertain times.

And you don't have to directly tackle major company-wide projects. Rather start with your peers - the heads of other business teams - and make them excited about the possibilities that technology can bring to their departments.
