Information Technology management is similar to planting seeds of ideas and waiting to see if any will germinate. If they do we scurry around to find water and nutrients, and we try to keep the weeds at bay, so that the practices that we need to encourage have a chance of taking hold. As they grow and develop, we are constantly called on to cultivate their soil and to stake and prune and protect them (Kuh, 2005).
