As life and work become more complex, I sometimes wonder how people keep up.
I am watching an organisation’s IT department that has been split in two (one side of the business decided it needed its own IT as the IT department was too costly and didn’t give what was needed). A residual culture of bullying tacticsfrom the previous CIO who was forced out eventually. No way the two groups talk enough to each other. No common way forward.
How on earth would you re-start this into a functioning organisation without a huge turnout of the top levels? Even though most of them are probably not the cause of the dysfunctional situation, they are so far stuck in it they can’t see a way out.
Could a small team of really great leadership fix it?
