Strategic IT and Business Management Interventions:
People, Strategy, Delivery and Structure/Process

Focus on the 20% which makes 80% of the difference
in managing IT to drive business performance

Bring clarity in complexity to maximize business impact from IT  and Data


The Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

80 20 IT Management is all about applying Pareto to maximise business value from IT while minimising the costs of IT.

Brief, very pragmatic, strategic IT and Business Management interventions on the 20% can make a big difference in your business performance.

I provide effective strategic IT and business management interventions to quickly address issues in the People, Strategy, Delivery and Structure/Process domains. This is feasible by identifying the relevant 20% of the opportunities and actions which makes 80% of the difference in business outcomes.

 I can help drive your company success by optimising value generation from IT, whilst minimising the cost. By bringing clarity in complexity, roadblocks can be adequately removed and business value will be unleashed.

Whether you would like support for setting or executing your IT strategy, or value a second opinion for a strategic decision, I can help you with a quick scan to get to the desired business outcomes.

Interventions will be fast and agile, as I can leverage my extensive experience in focusing on the critical few in IT management.

My experience in setting IT & Data Strategies in a very pragmatic way can be to your benefit.  I have successfully driven business performance improvements through IT and Data, both for large international companies as well as for medium-sized and small companies. Only pragmatic do-able strategies and realistic solutions will be proposed.

In my engagements with business executives, the focus on generating business value has helped me to fine-tune my capabilities to find the 20% in IT Management which matter. Only by that relentless focus both effectiveness and speed are achieved.

In getting things done, these are my priorities (in that order):
  1) People, 2) Strategy, 3) Delivery and 4) Structure/Process.

My professional consultancy services can be provided in many ways. Each intervention is different and is tailored to your needs. Typically brief interventions are provided in a trusted advisor role, where confidentiality is important. Examples of the services which I offer:

  • Fast-track your IT and Data Strategy;
  • Reset a troubled IT programme for success;
  • Assist in strategic IT decisions, like application platform choices;
  • Coach IT leaders to increase business impact;
  • Train global teams to work across cultures;
  • Perform motivational speaking engagements for business focus;
  • Review your IT Organisation; people, structure, process;
  • Review your IT Sourcing arrangements;
  • Execute IT market capability analysis, pre-procurement.

In closing.. I would like to help your business performance by increasing the value IT can bring, by supporting you regarding:

People make the difference; great people are materially more important than a great process to make the difference in business performance. Hence my first priority is all about people, ensuring the success of current and future IT managers.

Improving business performance and reducing business risks via the deployment of IT is all about making choices. Having a business driven IT strategy is essential to ensure business success by getting the best value from IT. Also a specific business driven Data Strategy will be essential. In setting your strategies, it is just as important to decide what not to do as it is to decide what to do. I would be happy to support your teams in setting your business IT and business Data strategies.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating – people & plans need to deliver. I can help assess the quality of your delivery, and support you to resolve the most important issues in the delivery, also when working with 3rd parties.

Great people with a great strategy maximise the likelyhood of the right IT delivery for real business impact – especially when supported by fit for purpose structures (organisation, governance) and processes. I can help you to assess and improve these for your IT organisation and IT decision processes.
