IVIS-30, IT Innovation via job titles…yes, job titles

Next Step – Come up with a few possible creative job titles and use them when you feel it appropriate and when you feel comfortable with what you have chosen.  This may mean only for new roles or for new people but make it professionally catchy.

With internal IT needing to proactively communicate their business value to their company, its demand and supply chains and even to its customers, the more positive awareness IT can build, the better.   Positive awareness will increase IT’s  opportunity to demonstrate the true business value it can bring.

While using a catchy IT job title may seem trite or contrived to some, if the spirit is one of professionally promoting uniqueness of a role, it won’t be perceived in that manner.  The below is a great example, even though it is not a new title…..it is innovative and catchy though, isn’t it?  BTW, the below is a currently live job opening harkening back to IVIS-25 http://www.itconnecter.com/2013/07/19/ivis-25-innovate-in-it-through-open-networking-and-paying-it-forward-cio-ctoit-vpdirector-job-postings/ .
