A force of one

Being ‘Director of Information Technology/Business Systems’ sounds very lofty and officious, but being a department unto oneself at a entrepreneurial non-profit has its moments of humility. So while I manage a >$200k budget and deal with outsourced tech vendors from New York to New Delhi, I (with humor) notice that none of the other directors at my agency;

  1. Are required to crawl under someone’s desk as any part of their daily duties.
  2. Have a drill in their desk drawer.
  3. Still have occasion to use floppy disks.
  4. Get their hands dirty (literally)
