This week yet another CIO ask me “How can I make my IT team more proactive?”
I offered the following talking points for his team:
- Based on feedback from the management team we need to up our game and become more proactive
- By proactive I mean answering the right questions before the business even ask them
So what are the “right questions?”
- Here are my top-of-mind suggestions: -“What is our Information Strategy?” (Beyond SAP, Analytics…) -“What is our Cloud Strategy?” (Public, Private, Hybrid…) -“What is our Shared Service Strategy?” (In-source, outsourced, remain the same…) etc…
- To assure consistency and depth, each of you will be using our LeverSource method and tool to formulate these strategies. To help jumpstart this work, we will have a dedicated resource from LeverSource on-site to help drive the process.
