Driving Results from IT that Deliver Business Value
Bob Zimmerman, Vice President, Delivery, CTO, Geneca
CIOs today are under the gun to build value for
the business and not to be seen merely as
tactical or reactive.
In the mind of business users, BPM raises technology to the same level of importance as business. BP gives your customers a competitive edge by creating clear communication between business and technology and ultimately saves time and money.
CIOs can reasonably impact their company's competitive position by supporting BPM initiatives and removing distractions for the business. In order to support the BPM team, there needs to be clarity on what the business expects and what IT delivers. So, in a way, BPM enforces a discipline and a rigor, forcing alignment between IT and the business. In so doing, it ensures that changes to the business are implemented very rapidly and with no surprises.
This presentation explains:
- The critical success factors that guide IT to deliver on business process requirements
- Approaches and techniques to create common objectives and vision
- How to build a common language that provides the right information for assisting executive decision-making
- How to link I.T. process performance to organizational goals
- How to design metrics that measure the effectiveness of process improvements
