Business and IT leaders are bullish on technology and are focusing on making their organization IT-smart. They believe that it is critical for competitiveness or essential for managing business risks and costs. However, getting what you want out of information technology is challenging.
Information Technology began as a support function, leading to a one-dimensional management approach. With an "always on" information environment there is a thrust for it to be at the forefront, with critical implications for business growth and customer engagement. In addition, established practices, such as lean-management techniques, have highlighted the value of IT in reducing waste and increasing productivity. This deeper recognition of IT's potential has given rise to a new focus on enabling it to help organizations respond more effectively to changing business needs and gain a competitive advantage by spurring innovation and growth. Alignment for IT with the business side of the company is important. This requires a shared commitment- across IT and other parts of the business, which means shared responsibility.
Business leaders need to treat IT leaders as business partners and not simply service providers. At the same time, IT should creatively partner to explore what needs to be done. Business leaders must optimize the entire organization's interest and not that of an individual department or group. They must be committed to find win-win solutions because IT leaders cannot do it on their own. IT leaders should advise you on how to get the most out of systems and help you to invest responsibly in solutions.
The impact that IT can bring will remain limited until Business Leaders learn how to harness the technology. It's important to understand your team's requirement and the expectations from IT. Business Leaders need to manage the technology that fuels their business with their IT leadership. This will help in executing the organization's strategy effectively with innovative business solutions.
