    Poorly managed IT organizations where chaos rather than consistent, competent execution reigns is the bane of existence for IT leaders – successful delivery of IT services can only be achieved when technology practices and processes align to best practice frameworks that ensure consistent and competent delivery. But where do you start to drive effective change when your current IT organizational landscape is in disarray?

    Targeted to senior IT leaders and middle managers, this session will discuss a progressive plan to drive your IT organization to consistent execution practices without asking them to necessarily absorb (and potentially choke on) too much change all at once. We will discuss a starting road-map for basic levels of execution maturity to more advanced levels that align to frameworks such as Agile and ITIL. Key focus areas:

    • Why a chaos culture exists in IT and how to challenge it? – discuss the root issues of organizational culture and why some staff prefer chaos over consistency – develop strategies to address these barriers.
    • Why a road-map, playbooks, and frameworks are the keys to successful change
      • 1) Develop a change-grid strategy targeting specific delivery pain points
      • 2) Develop a YOY plan to mature your team from basic levels to advanced levels of execution maturity
    • How to introduce building-block concepts for Agile and ITIL – While throttling change for your IT department, begin to coach and teach fundamental concepts and benefits of proven execution frameworks
    • Accelerate change – when you have to move faster, discuss specific strategies which will accelerate the evolution from complete chaos to competent performance
    • The session will include some hands-on materials for leaders to draft an initial road-map for change during the session. The wrap up will allow questions and discussions around specific changes challenges that managers and leaders are facing in their organizations.
