    Culturally aligning IT with the part of the organisation that they serve

    Because IT has traditionally reported to finance, many IT departments have become culturally aligned with finance. IT teams focus on compliance, avoiding spend, minimising risk. It is essential that IT transforms and becomes culturally aligned with the parts of the organisation they serve.
