Summary: As technology plays a larger role in all aspects of business, the business is relying on the IT department more than ever. However, many IT departments lack the time and the resources to meet their growing expectations. How can your IT department become highly productive–without outsourcing work or hiring new staff? Here are a few examples of IT departments that accomplished this very goal.
It’s a problem I hear time and time again. IT departments are overworked and understaffed. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to complete everything.
If that describes your IT department, here are a few stories you’ll want to read. They explain how IT departments managed to overcome these common challenges.
You’ll find a recurring theme in each one: A small IT team gets tasked with a big project, and given a tight deadline. Learn how each one managed to complete their projects, despite their seemingly impossible time frames–and how you can do the same.
- This 2-person IT staff that needed to replace their order entry system and modernize their internal green-screen interface. Both projects were big, both were urgent, and they couldn’t afford to bring in outside consultants for help. What did they do? They completed both projects internally, faster than most larger IT departments ever could.
- This company estimated a critical project would take 1,000 hours to complete. The only problem: They didn’t have 1,000 hours to spare…and the project had an unmovable deadline. What did they do? They found a way to complete the whole project in just 300 hours.
- This company needed a web-based ordering system, and they needed it fast. However, their 3-person IT staff didn’t have the time to deliver such an involved system quickly. What did they do? They managed to create and roll-out and custom web-based ordering system faster than it would’ve taken to deploy a generic, off-the-shelf option.
