IT often accounts for substantial improvements in the areas of cycle time and improved information flow. However, the replacement of IT with newer systems is no main business objective, and not a goal in itself. Much IT value can be realized by improving information flow and access with innovative solutions within the existing infrastructure, keeping the need for IT investments to a moderate level. Some common issues faced by organizations include:
(1) Business demands for higher levels of service at lower cost, (2) low workforce productivity or organizational effectiveness, (3) poor application performance, frequent outages and constant fire fighting and (4) long term vision for the IT strategy has not been developed to guide investments in people, skills, operations and technology.

Strategy, initiative or project - whatever you call it, it's all about change. Perhaps you are changing your organizational structure, IT systems, business processes, or an IT led transformation project; and, no doubt, you've included the key functional areas involved, engaged a project manager and identified the project sponsor. However the wild card to success, and one that is often neglected, is working through the reaction of key stakeholders. Change is more likely to stick when leaders engage people at all levels in the organization, clearly communicate responsibilities, and provide a compelling rationale for change.
The key to OCG's client service is our ability to integrate functional know-how and complex IT enablement with deep industry knowledge.
