New titles added to your IT organization?
Value engineer. This role was designed to work with our business leaders and process owners to baseline the current state of business processes that could benefit from a technology solution. Once the baseline is complete, the value engineer helps them understand and quantify, where possible, the value that can be derived through improving those processes.
What characteristic is most important to you in an IT hire?
Those leaders that can demonstrate their ability to engage in critical thinking (what, so what, now what?), use head/heart/guts leadership and generate results using commitments as the baseline.
