Cutter Summit 2007: Managing IT Priorities

Rogelio Oliva's "Case Study: Managing IT Priorities at Volkswagen of America" at the Cutter Summit 2007 was an intense experience. We discussed things in a fashion that was so fast and furious that I couldn't possibly keep up.

So I thought I'd try a Web 2.0 trick and create a cloud of the group discussion.

To create the input for the cloud generator I listened closely to the discussion and captured every significant word that I could possibly type.

Hey there,

Do you happen to have any notes for the Managing IT Priorities case from the debate? I am very interested in what were some of the arguments given.

No, I don't have any notes except for the cloud I posted. Like I said, the discussion went by too quickly for me to do my usual note-taking.

But if you really want to know what was said, the Cutter folks recorded all of the events and offer the CDs individually or as a set. I purchased the set. You can purchase them here.
