These guys make $70k - $100k to sit around for hours on end waiting for one of their change requests to get approved. This is where users get frustrated. They think it is the server or network guy holding everything up. I prefer to work in the old school IT shops where I have control of everything and I trust my guys to do their jobs without me watching them 24/7.
Yes, to all of this. I don't blame the guys doing the work (at least not all of them). The governance process is ridiculous though, and some of them (especially the IT managers) use it as their "just say no" answer.

I work for Dell and didn't even hear of this. I'm going to go fishing for an invite.

What day is it for?
