  • Strategy to address harmonised business objectives is developed at functional level.HR , IT, Marketing, Production, etc will develop appropriate strategies to address the growth agenda set by the business.If Marketing strategy is change in RTM, IT and other functions come to the party to enable this otherwise the strategy may be thwarted by IT and other support functions
  • The more senior management embraces IT governance the more value from IT investment.The infrastructure may be the wrong one if IT becomes a barrier to business strategy.Good governance does not change with every small strategic change. It should be robust enough from the beginning and be able to handle minor changes in strategy e.g. new product range or line, new route to market strategy. The business was always going to have new products or RTM strategy!Good project governance ensures resources (human and financial) are in place before the project starts.Ways to manage conflicting goals must be design in the governance model chosen by the enterprise.
  • Overinvesting in infrastructure, or worse the wrong infrastructure results in wasted resources, delays and system incompatibilities with business partners.On average infrastructure accounts for 55% of IT TCO Investment therein must therefore be in line with business objectives and approved at the right level.
