If IT has a track record of failed projects, and as a result, the business has poor confidence in IT, it might be time for a change. Using a third party that is knowledgeable in IT Strategy implementation to interview executives is a great way to ensure privacy and unbiased results throughout the organization.

  • What are the growth strategies for your organization?

What are the critical areas that need attention? What are the goals of your organization?

  • What does IT need to look like?

What kind of staffing does your organization need to meet its IT needs?  What does the IT organization need to look like in order to accomplish these goals? Detail about roles and responsibilities would be useful in discovering any gaps or overlaps in roles.

  • What do the financials look like?

Is the IT budget sufficient to get things accomplished? Is there a way to reduce IT expenditures in order to focus on revenue producing activities?

  • What processes will you put in place to make sure that IT is aligned with the goals of your organization?

It’s imperative that you understand the business and how applied technology will move goals forward.
