Organisation and Governance

Governance

Many IT Projects and programmes require careful consideration of their organisation. Change and Transformation often require the organisational approach to be reviewed and reset. We can support strategy, organisational design and the practicalities of how to move towards new operational models.

Examples of previous work include:

  • Organisational review for large multi-national company involved in redesigning its IT environment and reporting mechanisms and re-centralisation of key infrastructure components. New model now being adopted progressively within the organisation.
  • Review of IT governance processes for major IT company providing support services to an international industrial organisation. The end result included a new proposal for an improved support model between the IT company and one of its major clients.
  • Review of global IT spending for major international banking organisation, based on global individual unit spending. Comparisons with macro-economic IT spending models acted as improvement indicators for the management of the bank’s individual business areas.
  • Review of governance processes for major European bank needing improved IT processes control and extra responsiveness to business demands.
  • Management evaluation of business-driven IT strategy for large European financial services organisation planning new governance mechanisms for improved management of expanding diverse infrastructure.
  • Review of global organisation’s multi unit disaster recovery planning and comparison with best industry practice.
  • Support to major global organisation overhauling its manufacturing and supply support services and needing a revised governance approach.
  • Long-term technical quality assurance (QA) for a financial institution, planning delivery of a global system revising its payments processing, on behalf of its corporate clients. Much of the planned technology is leading edge and risk management is paramount.
  • Validation and verification of service organisation’s new development approach using Independent Verification and Validation techniques (IV&V), leading to change recommendations to the adopted approach in the new system creation.
