Welcome to BizIT

BiziT is a light series of sketches which tells the story of Bob and his challenges as a CIO as he tries to influence his company towards a more IT enlightened approach. As you may expect, Bob hits a number of speed bumps on the way, many of his own doing. His CEO starts off with quite a low opinion and cynicism towards both Bob as well as IT. Bob's challenge is to try to change this mindset and influence the CEO and the wider Exec Board on the merits of greater IT investments towards business goals and as you will read struggles with this concept in the beginning. On the way, he goes through some pretty tricky situations and experiences some "self actualisation." He learns that IT is more than fixing problems and rescuing situations - most of which his team can do. His big challenge is changing the perception of IT from a service function to a strategic partner. At the beginning, Bob looks like he is struggling but let's see how it unfolds.

All characters are 100% fictional and are designed to be a "tongue and cheek" insight into Bob's challenges. And, while we are having lots of fun creating the sketches, we are also trying to drive a serious point which is: Effective IT leadership is difficult. It takes an amazing amount of courage and determination to succeed while also being able to use subtlety of language and approach while being commercially minded. We hope you enjoy the series.
