1 Leading IT through People Sharm Manwani Alistair Russell Colin Thompson Leslie Willcocks

2 Theme Description IT management is increasingly focused on business change in addition to technology management. This means a broader influencing role across the organisation and requires strong leadership skills. The technology manager role is primarily a supplier of IT and needs a mix of technical and management skills. In contrast the business change elements require strong business and interpersonal skills. The theme group will explore the implications for IT leaders in developing their own skills and those of their staff as well as the wider business community. Research will be presented on IT Management competencies from a variety of sources. The discussion will also cover the skills needed to enhance the professional disciplines associated with IT including business analysis, project management, service management and architecture.
