Small IT is beautiful. Paradoxically, as you increase spending on IT, the services provided become more and more disconnected from the company goals and objectives. Large initiatives almost always fail completely or do not deliver what was promised. Expensive, leading-edge technologies (and the expensive, leading-edge personnel that push them) rarely deliver commensurate value to the organization. The processes of IT become an end in themselves rather than an enabler of a leaner, more responsive business.
