This is an excellent approach and can help improve collaboration/trust between IA professionals and IT folks.
Your take on apolitical segmenting is an excellent way of getting a buy in from senior management for Enterprise IA.

Good job Lou, I like the way you decided to frame it. I wonder if there is value in making an equivalent effort towards product managers.
In my experience (in a large organization), even though they have product accountability and responsibilities, they still feel like they don't have a seat at the strategy table.
It seems easier to "connect" with IT managers (we have "I" in common), I wonder at what level we could connect with product managers best.
Regardless, I loved that you framed it not as "what is the value of IA" but "here are your pain points, this is how IA addresses them to support you".
