Efficient Management of IT is important to me. I have often heard and read about "IT having their own agenda" yes IT is not the car you have just purchased but it is the oil and without that oil your car will quickly seize up.
I have worked as an IT manager and as an IT consultant.and understand the attractions and benefits of outsourcing, but if you felt that your IT department had their own agenda while they were part of your company, as an outsource department they no longer have no further interest in your company than to tie you up in contractual red tape and encourage you to purchase items that were not in the contract. The problem is that IT is not really a product you can buy off the shelf as much as senior management would like, this is because no business operates the same way. Each department operates with their bespoke processes and for IT to work effectively they need to understand how they work otherwise the machinery of the organisation comes to a sudden hault.
Outsourcing can open up a business to standardise practices and wealth of highly skilled individuals, but like with Prince2 you may need to tailor your expectations.
Why not contact me and see what I can do for you?
