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.
