The topic of my next book. Governance of IT is poor: businesses ask too much of IT too fast. IT is crumbling. We need to ease up so that IT has the headspace to make improvements so as to respond more quickly to the demands

Editor's Notes

  • Tension between protecting the existing investment in information and technology assets,
    and serving change, the new
    A balancing act
  • Why do we have such a sucky project reputation?
    We do too many
    So we underfund them
    Especially we underfund people and process relative to tech
  • If we spend the right amount on people and process we’d have to kill some
    Free up the money to do the others properly
  • Eating BAU to deliver change
    People are breaking
  • Forget technology rate of change which keeps accelerating
    Humans, culture and organisations have a limit
    Changing faster than people within IT and consuming IT can manage
  • Putting the organisation at risk
    IT must speak up
    How?
  • The governors must understand their responsibilities wrt IT
    And they must understand the risk to the organisation
    Then it is their informed decision
  • How to decide properly
    With a service portfolio
    Not a project portfolio
    Take into account the effect on BAU
  • Not every organisation wants or needs to change at breakneck speed
    America has this fixation with competitiveness
    Compete or die
    And quarterly results
    We’re getting swept up in the hysteria
    Take the german or japanese manufacturers
    They play the long game
  • Not slow food
    Or slow business
    Slow IT:
    deliberately provocative
    Really mean SLOWER IT
    at a rate that IT can sustain delivery
    And the org can absorb delivery

    And the quid pro quo?
  • What does the business get in return?
    More successful projects
    Safer organisational change
    And FASTER DELIVERY
    How?
  • Finally time to do CSI: 10%
  • And Kaizen

  • : traditional outsourcing, Cloud, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS...
  • And Scrum

    And Kanban

    And Scrumban

    And…

    fast, iterative, incremental development

  • : fast, iterative, automated deployment
