Metrics That Matter – Supporting IT Decision & Strategy at the Senior Executive Level
IT measurements are meaningless if they don’t provide executives with information to make accurate and timely decisions. Yet many IT organizations produce reams of operational reports that provide tons of information yet still leave Senior Management blind as to what actions to take or whether IT benefits are truly being realized.
This session provides a solid practical approach for closing the loop between what kinds of metrics should be reported on and how Senior Management can leverage results for effective decision making. Actual examples are including nine key IT measurements that may make IT very squeamish with their power to quickly highlight issues.
As a result of this session, attendees will learn about what kinds of metrics matter most and how these fit into an overall model for making key decisions. In addition, attendees will get access to a simple EXCEL-based metrics model that they can use right away within their own IT organization.
