Back in January, in collaboration with Chase Zander, I started a process of consulting with senior IT managers to develop a list of the top business issues that they faced. This exercise was intended to shape the content of a IT Director Forum that we were planning. This will now be happening on 26th March in Birmingham (for further information see this post).
Back then, I promised to share some of the findings from this study. These are summarised in the above diagram. The input was based on public comments made by a selection of senior people on the CIO group of LinkedIn.com, plus e-mails sent to me on the topic and feedback received by Chase Zander.
A textual version of the data appeas below (sample size ~60):
|Issue||% of Votes|
|IT / Business Alignment||27%|
|Status of the IT Director||8%|
|Avoiding the latest and greatest||3%|
|Only one response||17%|
I would like to thank all of the IT professionals who contributed to this survey.
