Helping you in your Excellence journey
In the 21st century, IT and software organizations are perhaps living in the “best of times” and the “worst of times”. In just over a decade, we have seen a start-up in a garage exceed a hundred billion dollars in market capitalization. In the same decade, we have also seen some of the big names in information technology vanish without a trace, often absorbed by other organizations. Anticipating and being prepared for changes in the market place and technology have distinguished the survivors from the over-whelmed. Indeed, the organizations that are highly successful are the ones who created their own market spaces with supporting technology & infrastructure.
While the challenges faced by IT and software organizations tend to vary from case to case, some common threads are discernible: The need to move at a fast pace in tandem with markets & customers
- Pressure to add value to customer’s business on a continual basis
- Complexities of managing globally distributed product & service delivery arms
- Sustaining a high response culture while growing at a fast pace internally
- Constraints on managerial bandwidth to address all of the above
Adaptability, therefore, has become a critical organizational attribute for survival and growth. The need to go quickly from the strategy drawing board to people and operations requires answering many questions on organizational design, people alignment, systems & processes, governance, change management and, above all, leadership development. Indeed, we have seen that people development processes play the most important role of strategy implementation.
