IT should be the business engine driving growth acceleration and value creation. With an effective and efficient IT function, the results can be immediate and dramatic.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 06, 2016
Phoenix Strategic Performance and Quality Service Solutions have jointly launched a new eBook for Information Technology (IT) leadership titled, Future Proof Your IT Organization: A Multifunctional Approach to Make IT A Strategic Business Partner. To effectively start the new year, it is critical that IT organizations evaluate their continuous improvement processes to stay organizationally relevant.
The issues facing IT are complex and layered. Flynn and Mapp maintain that there are no simple, linear solutions to the issues facing IT. IT organizations today are at a crossroads, moving from the past into an unknown future. To help IT organizations achieve the role of strategic business partners in 2017, we have compiled best practices on how to evaluate the timely delivery of: products and services; innovation and transformation; and human capital value. These initiatives are taken from over 30+ years of experience working in IT and dealing with the organizational issues facing IT.
The eBook covers a variety of questions facing the new IT Organization including:
Does your IT Strategy have an IT – Business Leadership Alignment Focus?
Is IT Driving Business Innovation and Transformation?
Does IT have the Right Balance between Business Innovation, Operational Excellence and Future Focus?
Does your Organization Value IT as a Good Investment?
Does IT Leadership Have a Seat at the Executive Table?
Do the People of the New IT Organization Have the Critical Skills and Competencies to be Relevant, Business Aligned and Future Focused?
"We developed this eBook because we have seen that the best corporate strategy can fail at implementation without a robust IT business strategy supporting it. IT should be the business engine driving growth acceleration and value creation. With an effective and efficient IT function, the results can be immediate and dramatic. However, we must treat the IT function as a serious business function that requires a serious set of business disciplines," says Joanne Flynn, Founder of Phoenix Strategic Performance.
“For decades, boards, corporate executives and IT directors have sought evidence that IT investments generate business value. Unfortunately, business executives continue to find the link between investments in IT and specific business benefits something of a mystery. Yet, IT executives often assume the link is obvious. It’s time to construct a trail of evidence linking the role of IT and its people to business value," says Fred Mapp, Founder of Quality Service Solutions.
