IT is about people, and more specifically the 3 R’s – roles, responsibilities and relationships. Rob will highlight that this is the key to getting the people side of IT right; define and communicate clearly everybody's roles, responsibilities, and build and cement strong relationships both within IT and with internal and external business partners too. According to Rob, if we can agree who does what and to whom first, then the processes and tools will follow. Without that, IT initiatives are doomed to fail: all the shiny flowcharts and software in the world won't affect improvements until people are working together effectively. Rob will also discuss how to design service models to make sure everybody plays their part: operating models (or their subset support models), engagement models and RACI charts for each practice. He will also look at what we need and what tools are available to help you get there.
