Another article in addresses how to present IT to the rest of the business in order to get what you want -- a better department reputation, more visibility in the company and easier access to purse strings.

At my company this is not as much of an issue for me as I report to a single executive rather than a group. That simplifies my message and makes it easier to couch projects in terms that provoke a positive reaction. I admit that it would be draining at this point in time to fight battles with the rest of senior management as I'm still about a 25-50% hands-on guy and projects would slip if I had to play diplomat and politician full-time. I hope to get to that role at some point -- right now just isn't the time.
