It’s perhaps not the most elegant of metaphors but it works very well. Your business, depending on its size and complexity, will have numerous tasks and communications that need carrying out every day. They are what makes your business ‘happen’. But nothing ‘happens’ if those tasks can’t be carried out, or those communications carried, efficiently and cost effectively. They need a reliable, fir for purpose medium to carry them. In short, the ‘roads’ or infrastructure of your business is your I.T. system.
Now, if your business is to survive, and hopefully grow and develop, it must inevitably from time to time undergo change. Those changes may well call for a change management specialist to help you refine your objectives and identify what precise changes are needed to meet them. With that work completed what you have is not the complete journey, but a good map.
If the changes are of any significance the problem is that the map will reveal your start point, and your destination, but it will probably flag up that between the two there are some roads not yet built.
Which is where I come in. Not to take a pick axe to your existing thoroughfares, but to identify the best way to build, and in what direction, the new highways you’ll need to implement the new methods and requirements.
Timely, which means early, involvement of expertise in implementing change through I.T. led solutions is essential to delivering transition, or transformation, of a business or organisation.
The use of an external resource, which is where I come in, brings added benefits. Informed but impartial eyes see things much more objectively.
