Making the Change - The Management Context

A session at Every CIO's Guide to Managing Risk

  • Phil Standing

Changing behaviour is key to effective IT risk management. The challenge for management is to change your organisational culture from a ‘fire-fighting’ approach to a pro-active capability to solve problems and learn from experience. That means engaging your people in real change - not simply compliance. This presentation draws on case history to show how you can:

  • set business objectives from stakeholder's goals
  • make an objective evaluation of your current state; ie identify problems, how requirements are developed from the objects, how well are issues defined, how visible are they, how well is IT aligned to the business?
  • identify root causes, possible counter measures and actions
  • "Stop the line" until major problems are fixed
  • ensure your organisation's culture supports new initiatives
  • put in place an objective set of measures which tell you where you are, how well you are doing, what further improvements need to be made
  • break changes down into incremental steps, each low risk/cost, makes the change initiative steerable, measurable, understandable and visible
