The IT team had the business team so confused during the meeting that they eventually just tuned out and IT never actually got to talking about how the new technology could be used for marketing and why it was a good idea. The next issue is the lack of integration between IT and business. Not only do they have problems communicating the points they are trying to get across in language that can be easily understood, but the business end feels as though IT does not know how to meet their goals. A good example of this is on page 76 where it is discussed that “IT people don’t even know some of our basic business functions” and “We don’t feel IT is contributing to creating new business value for Hefty.” Lastly it seems as though there is bad time management and planning on the IT end. I cannot be too harsh on this considering that many projects do not go as planned, on schedule or on budget but this did raise a red flag in the mini case.

You see every situation to make money as one you should take. I am not a murderer; I want to make that clear. I’m not saying I don’t deserve to live the rest of my life in prison, cause I do. But I have 3 kids and a wife, living at home, and I didn’t want to disappoint them. I did something very bad out of the goodness of my heart, for my kids and family, but didn’t think about the amount of people I would be hurting.” “The boy left his apartment at 8, after an argument with Ken, did he know then that he wanted his father dead at that moment?
Why he decided to write to the Mayor and other important people at that time? What did he meant when he said that the white man was the devil? I’m trying to understand, but I’m just guessing that he was enraged for being held as a prisoner. It’s encouraging to know that his desire to be understood made him create his own knowledge with no help at all. What he did is what’s missing now a days because we are used to read just when we need to and most of us, if we don’t understand a word won’t even look for it on google.
However, body art is not always accepted everywhere, especially in the workplace. With the growing rate of tattoos and piercings amongst members in our society, employers must take into consideration whether or not they can hire someone with that kind of self-expression.
