11:15 - 12:00 Talk: Demand Management or Adopting Innovation – Keeping IT Business Partnering Relevant
A 20 minute presentation and facilitated discussion by Jon Baxter on a topic elected by the attendees of the last online networking meeting "the Buzz"
Synopsis: One of the challenges faced by IT Business Partners is elevating the status of the work they do for business stakeholders. If not distracted by projects and service issues, they often spend a significant portion of their time managing demand. Should this be the case? If not, is Innovation the best alternative and how persuade a broad range of stakeholders to adopt it?
