IT Value Management

Work with the business to ensure that the enterprise portfolio of IT-enabled investments contains programmes that have solid business cases. Recognise that there are mandatory, sustaining and discretionary investments that differ in complexity and degree of freedom in allocating funds. IT processes should provide effective and efficient delivery of the IT components of programmes and early warning of any deviations from plan, including cost, schedule or functionality, that might impact the expected outcomes of the programmes. IT services should be executed against equitable and enforceable service level agreements (SLAs). Accountability for achieving the benefits and controlling the costs should be clearly assigned and monitored. Establish fair, transparent, repeatable and comparable evaluation of business cases, including financial worth, the risk of not delivering a capability and the risk of not realising the expected benefits.

  • IT not aligned with the business
  • IT value management lacking the support and commitment of senior management

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Define a committee, supported by a formal charter and containing both IT and business unit leadership, with the objective of directing IT-enabled investment programmes, IT services and IT assets.
  2. Ensure that the management activities of the IT-enabled investment programmes, IT service and IT assets use a formal process that requires business cases that include cost-benefit analysis, analysis of alignment with business strategy, risk assessments, SLAs for IT services and the impact to the current IT portfolio.
  3. Ensure that the management activities of the IT-enabled investment programmes include a process that:
    • Monitors the development and delivery of IT components of investment programmes
    • Requires reviews of IT service delivery against equitable and enforceable SLAs
    • Monitors deviations in terms of cost, timing and functionality
  4. Ensure that accountability for value delivery, i.e., the achievement of business benefits through the use of IT, is clearly assigned at an appropriate level.
