Your Success Is Our Success

In our consulting roles, we are frequently told by IT leaders that their organizations lack the talent, bandwidth, or experience to find success in the business of people. How should this be addressed? First, assess and better align the talent in your organization. Second, improve or define the operational processes around the Business of IT. Third, supply resources that bridge the gap between strategy, execution and business and IT.
