What Can INFOLOGISTIK Do for a Business Executive?
Although information technology offers many solutions, it has failed to solve
one fundamental business problem: How do you control the result when
implementing a vision or strategy - be it a merger or streamlining of the
business processes or modernizing the IT infrastructure?
There has been no effective mechanism to get your vision transformed to
implementation plans. Consequently, you have no way of knowing if your strategy
will work as you conceived it, because there are too many variables, too many
different interpretations, too many conflicting interests. You are left to rely
solely on your leadership skills, which may not suffice in the global arena,
where different mentalities or cultures interpret directives and goals
Is there a better way? In the mature engineering disciplines (civil,
electrical, mechanical) for problems of
similar complexity there has been. When you wish to build a new corporate headquarters, for example, architects
draw up plans. Your vision is transformed into blueprints, which guide
the construction process. There is little chance of derailing it without
your knowledge, and coming up with a tower of Babel.
Wouldn't it make sense to use these established engineering principles when
planning to transform a company or its IT systems? Just as no architect would
dream of building a skyscraper without a blueprint, it is logical that the
design or redesign of any business or IT system also calls for a blueprint (graphical model)
in which the planned structure, processes and communications can be examined and
understood by all affected.
50% of major systems or re-engineering
projects fail or fall short of meeting their objectives, because there is
no clear understanding of the "as is" state, the complex interdependencies,
and what is to be "built".
System "blueprints", as proposed by INFOLOGISTIK, eliminate this
problem by making complexity manageable. It will not produce miracles,
but will enable you and your subordinates to deal with seemingly unmanageable complexity in a
straightforward manner. You will save time and energy in keeping the
implementation of your vision or strategy on course. You will employ your human resources
more effectively, by dramatically improving the quality of communication among
managers, consultants, IT professionals, suppliers, and all affected. It is the
best insurance policy you can acquire against the risk of failure or mediocrity.
You will feel good about being able to steer the unfolding of your vision.
INFOLOGISTIK can provide you the right technology and train your re-engineering
team in its use.
