IT/Business Alignment Services

Is everyone  in your business boat rowing in the same direction?

If IT and the rest of the business aren’t synchronized, they might find they’re each going in different directions

As the old saying goes, if you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.  Without a plan, an objective that's been discussed with others and agreed-to, then IT leaders may have a very different idea of success than business leaders do.  And the last thing IT and business leaders want is for IT to think it's succeeded while the business is falling behind

Do IT and business leaders have the same objectives for how the business will use technology?  Is decision-making consistent, synchronized and predictable?

Chordia Consulting's IT / Business Alignment Services can help you build a plan that has buy-in...and a roadmap to achieving it.
