"Listen And Learn."

You simply have to learn what questions to ask, along with how and when to ask these questions, to get a comprehensive response or one that you can work with.

"You need to know everything."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Learn everything you can about how every facet of the business operates. In order to be successful you must provide solutions with real bottom-line impact to executives who do not want to know anything about the details. Phrase everything in terms of business benefit and never (visibly) do anything for the sake of technological purity.

"The amount of paperwork and contract review involved."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Focus on project management and dont micro-manage. Trust your employees to make some of their own judgement calls and let them know you are always willing to discuss any issue with them. Also communicate regularly with other department leaders to make sure IT is providing the tools to make each department as productive as possible.
