As a business you will have a Business Plan, a Sales Strategy with sales forecasts and hopefully a Marketing Strategy. You have regular meetings with your managers, team meetings and staff briefings. You know what your business is about, where you are going and what you need to do. One question do you have an IT Strategy?
We don’t need an IT Strategy, we’re not an IT company
Without an IT Strategy you will find you will lurch from IT crisis to it crisis. Staff will become demotivated as their profession becomes a chore. As a result productivity will inevitability drop, customer service will suffer and customer retention will become harder and harder. Simply bringing in someone to “fix” the computers isn’t the answer. They will do a great job at fixing the symptom but not the root cause.
What’s the solution?
Make someone, who has the right experience responsible for the role. That means recruitment, a massive increase in staff costs as these people are not cheap and will there be enough for them to do full time? The real solution is to look for someone who has 30 years IT experience, who will work for a few days a month or a day or two a week. You will only have to pay them a fraction of the cost. If they are on a rolling contract you can let them go with a short notice, no tribunal to worry about as well as all of the pensions, paid holidays etc.
