Top Ten IT Strategies To Employ During This Economic Downturn

Published By: 123Together     Published Date: Mar 17, 2009
With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Are senior business leaders holding back tech adoption?

Published By: 8x8 Inc.     Published Date: Jun 16, 2017
Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies. Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology. But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business. A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

The Secret Weapon to Driving Employee Success: Your Managers

Published By: Achievers     Published Date: Mar 27, 2014

They are the leading cause of employee disengagement. Today, 70 percent of North American employees feel indifferent or disengaged at work, costing the U.S. economy nearly $500 billion every year* in lost productivity, substandard performance, and employee turnover.

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Oct 19, 2011

The CFO as the Architect

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Oct 19, 2011
Despite a number of compelling reasons to move away from annual plans and budgets, many CFOs are reluctant to make the change. They fail to recognize that there are alternative (and less dysfunctional) ways of driving performance improvement and making managers accountable for performance. CFOs need to implement systems that provide managers at every level with the capability to make fast, well-informed decisions. They need to replace annual planning cycles with more regular business reviews that enable managers to see trends, patterns, and "breaks in the curve" long before the competition.

Six Rules for Effective Forecasting

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Apr 25, 2012
In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

Why Forecasts Fail. What to Do Instead

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Apr 25, 2012
In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

StandOut:A team leader led approach to fueling engagement and accelerating performance.

Published By: ADP     Published Date: Jun 01, 2018
Too remedial. Too retrospective. Too static. Too irrelevant to the team leader. Too time-consuming. Such are the complaints heard repeatedly about Performance Management and Engagement systems. And these don’t even touch on the biggest problem of all: current systems produce a tidal wave of unreliable data. The ratings they yield are based on the notion that, with enough time and training, managers (and peers) can become reliable raters of other people’s skills and competencies. Sadly, that’s not true. A large body of research reveals: 61% of your manager’s rating of you is a reflection of the manager, not of you. Your organization, apparently unaware of this, then persists on paying you, training you, and promoting you—and everyone else in the organization—based on these flawed ratings.

Straight Talk About Hyper-Converged Infrastructure: Is HCI Right for You?

Published By: Ahead     Published Date: Feb 05, 2018
There’s a lot of noise these days about hyper-convergence. IT managers are facing internal pressure to adopt hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions to make their departments more efficient and “cloud-like” as well as external pressure from vendors fighting for market share in an increasingly crowded space. While an HCI solution could bring your organization significant benefits, it’s not necessarily simple to implement, nor is it the optimal solution for every use case. To determine if HCI is right for you, first we need a clear definition of what it is and what it does.
