It's a rare broadcast engineer who becomes a GM, and if the GM didn't come up by that route, the engineering department is pretty mysterious. Still, most CEOs are aware of the sea change in broadcasting technology toward information technology. In an interesting unsigned article in Broadcast Engineering, the author states that "neither broadcast engineering nor IT are absorbing the other; in reality a new engineering discipline is being born."
Still, the changes underway have a profound impact on the capabilities and capitalization requirements of an organization. The author discusses how using the Capability Maturity Model and Six Sigma can help broadcasting management understand and manage this development. The article ends with a half dozen links to resources on these two models.
