Improve IT Communication and Alignment with the Business
Effective communication both within IT and to the business is critical to the success of IT. However, with day-to-day fires and continual projects, communication often gets little attention. To be successful, CIO’s need to actively market the value of IT. We help you to develop an overall communication plan to strengthen your communication efforts and make it a regular process. We help you identify a communication resource and proper tools to assist with IT communication and promotion. We can help you navigate the waters to become politically savvy and increase your networking abilities.
We can jointly develop a service catalog from the view of business which helps with communication as well as financial aspects of IT. Implementing methods for transparency in the budgeting process will help the business understand the IT finances and participate in ensuring IT has the proper resources to meet the business needs. Improved communication helps the business understand the value of IT and how it impacts the bottom line in business terms that resonate with them so that they can become an advocate for IT.
Obtain an objective view of you and your team’s performance through discussions with your business partners. We help you develop and implement an annual survey to obtain quantitative data to ensure you are continually moving in the right direction.
