The danger with being an IT specialist is forgetting that other people may neither think the same, nor understand your language.It’s like a Frenchman talking to a German without any comprehension of what the other is trying to say. So if you are a Chief Information Officer (CIO) or Chief Technology Officer (CTO), it’s time to try to put across what you wish to implement in layman’s terms.
This means talking less about the technology while talking more about what it can do for the business in terms of the freedom it provides to adapt your organisation, how it will save or contribute to achieving greater returns on investment and how it will increase your competitiveness.
