We had a meeting of the IT Commission yesterday afternoon. The Governor came and discussed his plan for IT and his desire that we find a way to "increase our velocity." After he left, I filled in some of the details. The Commission staff had prepared a long list of "possible concerns" regarding the new plan and advised that we "go slow."
The Commission is a creature of the legislature and has an important roll in the policy, legislative, and funding side of IT. I'd find it more useful if they were forthcoming with positive suggestions and encouragement instead of merely reacting with "go slow" every time we try to do something. My boss isn't telling me to go slow.
