IT Department Branding
IT Brand - Leveraging the core elements of a set of strategies to become a high impact business partner
IT Branding is the process of building and improving the IT brand identity with the intent of becoming a high impact business partner.
This brand identity is shared and experienced by employees and groups that control the way they interact with each other, with stakeholders and with internal and external customers.
It is a powerful approach for transforming the IT organization into a group of people who perform calculated, yet seemingly spontaneous, service delivery in the best interests of the business.
