Veel organisaties nemen hun huidige systeemlandschap onder de loep, op zoek naar meer flexibiliteit en onderscheidend vermogen.

Gebrek Aan Structuur Belemmert Flexibiliteit van IT

Overkoepelende structuur ontbreekt vaak Als het gaat om het ontwikkelen van nieuwe functionaliteit blijkt er vaak een gebrek te zijn aan overkoepelende structuur. De IT-afdeling wordt gedreven door de noodzaak om zo goed en snel mogelijk in de behoefte van de business te voorzien. Het functioneert als traditionele leverancier van de business, waarbij het eigen bestaansrecht min of meer als vanzelfsprekend wordt beschouwd. Voor de inzet van IT worden doorgaans afzonderlijke investeringsvoorstellen ingediend en een goed inzicht in de totale kosten ontbreekt dikwijls. Deze bevindingen zijn in lijn met de resultaten van het onderzoek ‘Bringing Dexterity to IT Complexity: What’s Helping or Hindering IT Tech Professionals’ (2015) van het Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network: ‘Gebrek aan vaardigheden, kortetermijndenken, gebrek aan samenwerking en onvoldoende budget belemmeren de IT-transformatie.’

Why Strategic Alliances Fail: New CMO Council Report

In a recent study conducted by The CMO Council (for a complimentary report, click here), 85% of respondents viewed partnerships and alliances as essential or important to their businesses. In today’s more complex world, where expertise is often gained through strategic relationships, this isn’t surprising. However, what was unexpected was that although strategic partnerships were rated as important, almost half reported high failure rates (failure rate of 60% or more).

To thrive in this volatile and ever-variable business climate, a new report, conducted by the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network, is advising CFOs, management accountants, and other finance professionals to literally "rethink" the way their finance departments do business. The report, "Predictability Through Planning Agility: Best Practices in Collaborative Budgeting and Continuous Business Rebalancing," released this August, says finance professionals must "consider new agile financial processes that improve predictability and responsiveness to changing business conditions" if they want their companies to grow today's capricious business climate.
