There is so much hype around the term ‘IT Transformation’ - it risks losing its meaning. Transformation is too important to be lost in the hype, so we’ve created a series of workshops to help IT leaders deal with the challenges found in IT Transformation.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2010
CastlePointe is pleased to announce its IT Transformation Workshop Series. The drive for IT transformation is based on real challenges facing IT executives. To help IT organizations overcome these challenges, CastlePointe has developed a multi-track workshop series that includes a set of three customizable tracks offering creative and proven strategies to address the key issues affecting IT leaders, management teams and initiative leaders.
"There is so much hype around the term 'IT Transformation' that it risks losing its meaning," said Charles Araujo, President and CEO of CastlePointe. "But Transformation is too important to be lost in the hype, so we've created a series of workshops to help IT leaders deal with the very real challenges found in IT Transformation efforts. There's no 'pie-in-the-sky' here. These are practical approaches to dealing with the real world challenges facing IT organizations as they work to transform. We're extremely excited to offer these workshops to our clients."
The IT Transformation Workshop Series is based upon CastlePointe's "three pillars" of IT Transformation:
I. IT Transformation is Cultural Change: IT Transformation is not a buzz word. It is a journey that will enable an IT organization to become what it needs to be in order to deliver strategic value to the business and stay relevant. This requires a structured approach which changes personal and organizational behaviors and embeds them into the organizational culture.
II. Transformation Begins with IT Effectiveness: The first thing IT must do to remain relevant is to become effective in the delivery of foundational IT services. This includes ensuring basic availability of services, but also includes the on-going development and measurement of capabilities and disciplines which will enable the organization to operate efficiently and to constantly adapt to meet the changing needs of its customers.
III. Transformation Must Drive Business Value: The ultimate goal of IT Transformation is to drive strategic business value. To do this, IT organizations must develop a service culture which is highly innovative, competitive within the broad marketplace and offers the business complete transparency in its governance, operations and financial costs and constraints.
These highly interactive workshops can be customized to meet specific requirements and are offered in one-day or multi-day collaborative formats including:
- 4 Hour Executive Workshops
- 1 Day Transformation Workshops (1-2 Topics)
- Multi-day Objective-Driven Transformation Workshops (Fully Customizable)
Each workshop contains the following components:
- Presentations that challenge conventional wisdom in the selected topic area
- Interactive discussion about the topic and the ideas presented
- Collaborative application of the presented topic to a real and current problem in the organization
