For over 2 decades, the work of Executive Intent has been the transformative to over 50 companies, ranging from Fortune 10s to startups. The results have been astounding, enabling results of 100% or more corporate growth – and that in Fortune 1000 companies – with a cumulative savings of in excess of $2B. It consistently enthralls and excites me to herald these transformations, and see the resultant benefits. Most of the time, the rank and file of the company don’t even recognize that change has occurred, at least not overtly. But over a short period of time, they grasp the impact, and become, to quote Dee Hock, that “vital, living set of beliefs”.
We primarily work in the realm of information technology organizations, not because of the technology – twiddling bits will never fundamentally enhance a business – but of the impact that IT can have on business. IT, HR, and Finance all span the core of any business, but only IT can effectively transform business operations by enabling cheaper, better, and faster methods for the business to operate – IT is the mechanism of change.
As such, Information Technology has the greatest potential to make or break a business ; to create market differentiation and competitive advantage. This is not done through technology, per se but in the behavioral interactions and relationships that, in many cases today, are broken.
Yet IT is relegated – often self-inflicted – to the role of running a service delivery function for the company. That is a business AND and IT failure, that we will explore, debunk, and hopefully, correct with the thoughts and experiences contained within.
