About this event

Course Description:

Do you want to improve the performance of your IT Management organization? Is the business dissatisfied with your services? Do your team members need an energy boost? Could your way of work be improved?

Improvement initiatives often fail because people bite off more than they can chew. During a workshop they identify various improvement initiatives and genuinely want to tackle them, but then get bogged down in their day job. Their initial enthusiasm turns sour, with people feeling guilty that they haven’t been able to perform as expected, or blaming their managers for getting them into this mess. No wonder that future improvement initiatives are regarded with some “there we go again” cynicism. The ‘choose your own battles’ approach avoids this major pitfall by only selecting initiatives that the participants consider really worthwhile, and honestly assessing both their practical capabilities to execute and the possibilities and limitations of the organizational ecosystem.

Course Outline:

Module 1: Kick-off and introduction

  • Kick-off by client to set the scene
  • Introduction by each participant, with background, expectations, issues and mottos

  • Interactive creation of a high-level Assessment of the IT function, based on the big IT picture model

Module 4: Identification and qualification of potential improvement items

  • Discussion about each quick scan item and identification of potential improvement items, including provisional ranking of value, resulting in a list of potential improvement items

Module 5: Ranking of potential improvement items

  • Discussion about the relative value of each potential improvement item, resulting in an updated list with value scores

Module 6: Assessment of feasibility of improvement items and division of items into quick wins and longer term improvement areas

  • Presentation of Covey’s Circles as a way of identifying which improvements are feasible and which are a ‘mission impossible’
  • Discussion about the feasibility of each potential improvement item, resulting in an updated list with feasibility scores
