How do you know when it's time to change direction?
When economic conditions change, will inertia keep you
from taking control and making necessary changes?
Will you even notice that changes are needed before
it's too late?
Why Do We Keep Hiring Admin Staff?
By Ellen Koskinen-Dodgson
We regularly hear IT managers and directors complain
that there's always money available to hire more admin
staff but no money for IT to automate more business
processes, even though this would eliminate the need
for some or all of the new staff.
We see the extra staff whenever we create a business
process diagram for a client.
The Unnecessary Disaster - Part 2
By Len Garis et al
Urban myths abound - we are often told that 'an event'
causes a disaster but it often isn't true.
Hurricane Katrina of 2005 did not cause the flooding and
devastation in New Orleans.
In fact, everything went perfectly...
until it all fell apart.
CIO for Hire
Clients smaller than $300 Million per year in revenues
likely don't have a CIO.
They need one but can't afford one.
A CIO is a very senior IT leader that understands
business drivers and can speak the language of the CEO,
COO and CFO.
The CIO works with IT staff and managers to plan and
TMC can assign a CIO to work with clients on
a part time basis.
One to two days a month can translate into more
confident staff and better financial decisions.
