Why Is Corporate IT Never Fast Enough?
Despite the quantum leaps that information technology has made in the past decades, the corporate function does not get any better at delivering business solutions at an acceptable pace?
A System that Yields Lower Quality, continuously.
This book shows how and why your IT team is systematically delivering lower-quality systems with increasing complexity, instead of spearheading the drive for business agility. Yet, have no fear; this is no techy treatise. The unwanted complexity is technical in nature, but the root causes are not. Decision rights, accountabilities and performance measures are the guilty sources of undesirable behaviors that have been lasting for decades with no signs of improvement. And this standstill will continue for decades to come unless business people change the rules of the game. Here you will find many corporate IT behaviors rarely disclosed that remain discretionary internal topics or plainly technical issues, but nevertheless have a major impact on your IT strategy.
