Is your IT Team and Budget a Victim of Process Over-Engineering‪?‬ CIO Talk Network Podcast

    • Technology

When IT teams try to rationalize which project to invest in, where to appropriately allocate IT spend and how to respond as business constantly changes, the process put in place is often over-engineered. We see the budget utilized ineffectively and unnecessary delays as we try to standardize everything to find a compromise where both business and staff are happy. It results in the team getting focused on how to execute that process rather than determine how to achieve the right outcome. How do we learn to minimize and prevent becoming a victim of the process?
