Organizing for Success

Breakthrough results from a Next-Generation Operating Model

The Shortcomings of Current Models

The driver for convergence between business and IT operating models has been accelerated by today’s Isolation Economy, and has exposed both shortcomings and hidden potential in many models. While many organizations have put constant pressure on IT to do more with less, cut costs and increase their responsiveness, the fact that nearly all businesses were able to react to the global economic shutdown, shift to remote work, and do so with moderate-to-zero disruption in their operations is testament to the heroic efforts, and capacities, that lie within modern information technologies, and information technology departments.

There has been extensive focus on Agile, DevOps and SCRUM approaches to IT for over a decade. Cloud, -aaS, and other means of commoditizing IT have also been around for decades. Given the myriad of approaches to IT that exist, the challenge is to determine how to achieve breakthrough results from an operating model change, and unpick the myriad conflicting models that have been tried and tested with carrying results.
