Don’t we all wish for quick and easy fixes! Unfortunately, we have not found that magic wand that lets us reset and start over. It is our observation that most IT departments and systems have grown organically with no longer-term strategic plans. What started out as a cost center, tossed under the “general office” category and managed by whoever had the time has now grown into a beast that must provide direct and immediate value to a business’ productivity and bottom line. Transforming this beast can be a painstaking adventure.
We will definitely keep looking for that magic wand. But in the meantime, tomorrow is defined by the actions we take today. No more procrastinating. Let’s get started.
