Gender Equality

Much of IT management came up from the ranks of plant supervisors where being overbearing and constantly threatening workers with termination is the norm. Sadly, they continue to employ the same attitudes and management style in the IT department. Employees are "workers" and they are the elite--even though many of the "workers" have more education and IT-related experience than the elitists.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Try hiring actual IT professionals to manage your IT staff. The guys who came up through the ranks may know your company quite well, but they really don't know much about IT. IT management's concept of "high tech" is 15 year old technology.
