Does your Board provide effective oversight?
Organizations are dependent on Information Technology: it permeates throughout every level and receives significant capital and operational dollars. But how can you be sure this investment supports the enterprise and its strategies?
Generally companies focus on two key IT strategies:
- use Information Technology as a competitive differentiator
- use IT to reduce operational costs and drive efficiency
Your company does use IT and to what extent varies widely from industry to industry. Regardless of which business sector you serve, how do you know your IT investments are creating value?
Boards and management often focus their attention and governance on finance, personnel, capital/physical assets, and intellectual property, but they must also to extend governance to IT.
You don't have to be an IT expert to provide effective IT oversight.
