Ethical and consistent behavior by the people involved is the foundation for culture building. Four Core Components of IT – PSPT – People, Strategy, Processes, Technology – The PSPT components are clearly understood, consistently implemented, and revised at a pace that meets the pace of change for the business. – Appropriate balance is maintained between them for focus, funding, talent, etc. Three Life Cycle Phases – PPO – Planning, Projects, Operations – Each phase has competent and committed leadership. – The leaders communicate with one another and produce work that is synergistic and coordinated across the three phases. – Appropriate balance is maintained between them for focus, funding, talent, etc.
An IT department has four core components, People, Strategy, Processes and Technology – Other components (Solutions/Applications, Architectures, Services, Policies, Contracts, etc.) are built from these four Each core component can be optimized – Strategy: Business functional alignment, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Target architectures – People: Relationships, Morale, Loyalty, Competence, Enthusiasm – Processes: Governance, Handoffs, Change, Incident handling, Escalation, Regulatory compliance, Efficiency, Stability, Recovery, Security, HR – Technology: Standards, Inventory, Currency, Integration, Evolution IT departmental optimization requires balanced optimization of all four components – Optimizing one often requires suboptimization of another – The right balance will change over time 1/4/ Healthy IT snippet: PSPT Optimizing an IT Department There are key skills necessary for optimizing all four IT components.
