ICT is central to most ventures now and the CIO is normally highly influential not only from the technology aspects of the business but to the business itself. Boards and senior managers no longer look at ICT as a cost but expect ICT to deliver measurable business value and the ICT team to innovate for the business as a whole. We work with clients in both the public and private sector to assess their current capability and target capability connected to the business goals and assist in the design of every aspect of the strategy to deliver business value. ICT touches virtually every stakeholder in the business so in particular we look at the Organisation Development aspects, as much as the Processes, Technologies and Competencies. We also advise on the selection and adoption of appropriate industry standard Frameworks for managing ICT such as ISO, ITIL, CMMI, Cobit, IT-CMF.

But this is not a technology focussed program it is as much about organisation development and culture change and must be linked to the business KPI’s.
