These insights into the organizational coefficient of drag are hopefully not lost on the leaders that undertake this kind of transformation.

Unfortunately, current organizational theory and practice does seem to be the common skill missing from most leaders tasked with the operation of Information Technology. They either organize in a silo or a matrix choosing one of the prevalent conventional models.

I think all Enterprises have struggled with this organizational dilemma on how best to aggregate skills to deliver the services. The advent of cloud computing just provides some sense of urgency to address the problem.

Most re-organizations are viewed negatively by the people they impact precisely because they happen so frequently with little benefit. I think your comment about pragmatism when considering these changes is a great starting point.

Thank you for the opportunity given to me as I look forward to the interview.



Your article is spot on. The key here is executive level sponsorship, funding and support. We have been successful getting the right sponsorship at a couple of key accounts using a model based on Kotter’s 8 step change model. We built a webinar and white paper around it at http://www.itsmsolutions.com/ITIL_Training_assessment.asp
Keep the articles coming.

I will recommend not to hold off until you get enough amount of cash to order goods! You should just get the business loans or secured loan and feel fine

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
