IT Emphasis: The responses

I suspect that we would have much better insight to the question posed in my earlier post had it been asked by someone¬†better known that me ūüôā ¬†As it is, the volume of responses I received weren’t statistically significant by any reasonable measure, but there are still some interesting insights from the comments, which I’ve shared below.

On the right is a little chart. ¬†The information junkies gathered the most votes with 42%, but for me what was interesting were the comments, which suggested that irrespective of the answer to question 1, I read that most concluded that the two belong together in some way. ¬†Commenter #5 challenges that there shouldn’t be an emphasis, and for the most, I agree with the thrust of that comment, but only to the extent that it doesn’t devalue specialisation.

I spend a lot of time listening to people (or at least trying Рsometimes I get the ears/mouth ratio wrong!).  Do you see a breakdown between business and IT?  Are there better questions that I should  have asked?  I wonder if there is anything academic being done in this space?

I’m leaving the survey open – should it gather further responses, I’ll come back and post.

(As an aside, no-one explicitly said that it was a stupid question, so thanks for that, in addition to your input!)
