Apart from being off on holiday enjoying this fantastic weather (well it is today, & I’m in the office!)…
Interesting couple of days last week at JISC Flexible Services Delivery Programme Supplier meetings – initial discussions with a range of suppliers about what their service offerings might be, where they saw things going, & how they might work with HE to take things forward. Some surprises, some food for thought – but overall a good start.
Also just started reading “IT Savvy – What Top Executives Must Know To Go From Pain To Gain” (Weill & Ross, HBP 2009) – high hopes given that previous titles (IT Governance & EA As Strategy) were excellent. Appears to be all about persuading senior management to adopt the approaches described in the other two titles – more later.
& this afternoon got a Gartner webinar on Five Ways the CEO Can Use EA to Support the Business – again more later.
