I work at a company where the head of the IT department has no background in IT she has been there for years. She knows nothing about APIs coding new software. The executive teams also have no idea about anything related to IT as well. They put her there because they don't know better.
Anyways one of my tasks in my department has multiple digital transformation initiatives going on and I can't really do anything because I have to explain every single thing or small software purchase to her and her IT department.
- Should I just stop trying to explore new things?
- Should I tell my boss I can't do this part of my job, if everything I do I have to run it through IT when they have no idea what it does?
- The way I figure it these people should tell me what is on the cutting edge of technology for my department not the other way around. Am I wrong in this situation?
