Big companies get a lot of glory and make a lot of headlines, but there’s often an advantage to remaining small and nimble. Regardless of the company size, the challenge is to find a way to thrive.
This trickles down to those of us in IT. We don’t get a say in the extent of our tech operation, and no matter the size of the department, I am sure most of us can remember a time when more staff would have been a lifesaver. Most of us are also familiar with the regular struggle to get budget approval for upgrades. Whether or not we get that approval, IT leaders must learn to work with whatever resources we can garner to do the job.
