Turning Around an Ineffective IT Function

 

 

  The Need:
       
  Over time, even the best-run IT functions can decline in the value they bring to the organization.  Finding the right steps to take, the right projects to launch (or kill) and the motivators to keep key IT performers committed and on board can be challenging. In most of these situations, time is also of the essence as opportunities are being lost, customers are being disappointed and competitors are gaining market position.  Internal change is unlikely to be effective, and a more dramatic solution is needed.
       
 
  The Objective:
       
  To remove the constraints and lethargy causing mediocre results and return the IT function to a more productive, motivated and valuable component of the organization.
   
  Approach:  
     
    Acquire IT turn-around management expert  
    Assess IT strengths and weaknesses  
    Identify organizational needs for IT  
    Plan and announce turn-around plan  
    Include constructive comments in plan; strive for consensus
    Execute consensus plan
    Measure results
 
  Benefits:  
     
  An IT function that contributes to organizational performance and profitability with rededicated IT employees, committed IT customers and satisfied executive management.
