For you as an IT decision maker, people always come first.
IT is not your passion in the first place. You consider it a great tool to lead talented employees and help them grow. You thrive on supporting colleagues to drive innovation in IT. You are an enabler who lets the experts around you do what they do best.
The whole IT staff enjoys working with you, as you always have an open ear doing everything to provide time and budget to try out new approaches and implement new technologies. As a result, your company has already embarked on a Cloud Journey, typically aiming at a Multi-Cloud setup.
When it comes to budgeting, you accept that your leadership style requires strong leaders next to you that keep everything going – and that “day-to-day task-doers” struggle more toward the end of the budgetary year.
THERE IS GOOD NEWS FOR YOU:
there are proven methods and tools to simultaneously accommodate innovative spirit, structure and efficiency. To align your IT department behind the most essential products and providers could be the best first step. Then, streamline your IT budgeting process by involving your business strategist at an early stage and harmonize commercial and technical priorities. Less can be more.
