Michael Vizard says in his article, The Trouble with IT isn’t Really IT, “….In reality, IT is little more than a reflection of the business it supports. If the IT department is a mess, it’s likely because the business it is trying to support is an even bigger mess.” Very interesting thought – and with BPM and process improvement projects, biz could perhaps find good help to get less messy. This article is especially interesting since BPM itself brings up debates and discussions on Business-IT alignments, gaps, participation and so on. EbizQ’s latest discussion has generated a lot of interesting perspectives about who should be leading BPM initiatives – Biz or IT. Another great read is Ann Alls article – the one that actually led me to the above – discussing if The CIO is the Right Person to Champion Process Improvements.
