Planning for the New Norm

Resourcing for IT has been an increasingly complex challenge for most organisations in recent years. Today’s environment has heightened that challenge and added in a few more nuances for good measure. While shutdowns, furloughs, and business closures have increased the number of people available in the market, finding the “right” people, with the right skills at the right time, has become more complicated.

Accommodating the acceleration of change in systems, applications, and IT operating models, coupled with changes in business strategies being formulated to accommodate an uncertain future could make the difference between success and failure for many organisations.

Decisions about in-sourcing versus outsourcing IT support, software as a service versus licensed in-house applications, data center ownership or contract to a managed service provider, target specific contract services versus in-house full time staff, are all branches of the growing IT decision tree.

Recruiters and recruiting agencies are great for finding qualified full-time employees but bringing in fractional resource, part-time or short-term is particularly hard right now. And, once you’ve found them, how do you then embed them in your team and culture when everyone’s working remotely?

The possible combinations are endless.  And a wrong turn along the way can lead to inefficiency, frustration, and increased cost of IT ownership with a minimal return on investment. Getting it right demands the right level of expertise, experience and independence – none of us want turkeys voting for Christmas.
