I always believed the executives and managements are our enemies. It was stupid. The executives are our unique allied.

The responsibility of them is to bring money. Our responsibility (as IT) is to spend that money. So, we are a burden for the executives, not the opposite. Otherwise, who would bring money to the IT department?. A developer?

Now, let's say one business where one of the executives consider the IT department is good for the business because it generates incomes. So, it means this executive could invest money in the IT department, it means a better office, more developers (if not raise for the team), new hardware and such.

Now, let's say the opposite, a business where the IT department is considered a waste of money, it means an office in the basement, old hardware, some firing, and cheap working force.

Sometimes they are annoying, especially when they try to push some technology (that they don't understand, but they read on some website/magazine).
