Topic: Leadership through down turn economies - Sustainability around People and Ideas
While taking people and head count down is the easiest way to recognize financial results around your budget, it's not always the right solution for the company, people and the economy.
In 1999-2000 we started to experience a similar downturn in economy, companies got shut down, plans for growth were put on hold and IT was under a microscope, a lot of spending for Y2K, big depreciations, ERP upgrades that always did not go right and the pressure around keeping budgets as a percentage of revenue, while revenues were declining rapidly.
If you are experiencing pressure on obtaining a lower budget while delivering to ever increasing demands placed on you and your team, then this session is for you. We will talk about some approaches on how to build a sustainable IT model that is in line with the company objectives.
