Have you ever wondered why sometimes a project that sounded so promising, to begin with just fizzles out to nothing? 
 
Even projects with the potential to revolutionise the way a business runs can lose momentum and eventually linger incomplete. This loss of momentum is pretty common within organisations and can occur even when a project starts with high levels of engagement from all parties. 
Effective risk management strategies will help you to identify the strengths of a project, as well as the weaknesses, opportunities with it, as well as threats or pressure points. By taking steps to plan for the unexpected, it means that you will be ready to respond as and when they come up. If you want a project to be a success, then you need to define just how you are going to handle any of the potential risks, so that you can spot, mitigate, and avoid any problems as and when you need to. Successful project management is all about being able to see the project as a whole, and knowing and understanding that risk management is something that is vital. The goals of a project and being able to achieve them depends on how well you plan and prepare. 
 
 
As a company grows, the company director needs to devolve a number of their roles and responsibilities. 
 
When the business is bigger, there is more that needs to be done, and if as a company director you tried to carry on doing it all, you would quickly find your daily tasks piling up and end up being unproductive. 
 
When it is your baby, so to speak, it can be hard to relinquish some of what you are doing, as a company expands completely separate teams may be required as the work becomes more varied. 
 
 
 
 
 
At the start of the global pandemic, many organisations were thrown in at the deep end, with a lot of businesses having their workforce suddenly working remotely. Whilst there are some businesses that will have had some experience with this, for many it was unchartered territory. Business owners who now had to accommodate all of their remote working employees brought with it some challenges particularly around communication. 
 
 
 
I previously wrote an article on my website and LinkedIn entitled ‘Be surprised at what you do‘. This article details what you or your business does in terms of daily processes that are completed without thinking. 
 
Another area that has come up when speaking with many businesses is that a number of assumptions are made about how things are run within their company. 
 
 
 
 
Many organisations and people within those organisations try to find the solution before they know the root of the problem. 
 
Before any solution can be found, understanding what the problems are is key to getting the right resolution that fixes that problem and brings efficiencies over the longer term. 
 
While it can be tempting to jump ahead, you really need to get to the root of the issue if your business is to flourish. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The events of COVID-19 have certainly forced a lot of businesses to adapt to a remote-working lifestyle, and for many, that posed quite the challenge. 
 
However, it’s an event that has questioned many things, including the role of the IT Director or CIO within a company. 
 
This is a role that needs to change and adapt in order to cope with situations like a pandemic and the range of long-term global, economic, and organisational issues that these individuals are facing in said roles. 
 
 
 
 
 
An SME is only ever as successful as its own processes. After all, in many cases, your processes are all that separates you from your competitors. If you run a business, your USP isn’t necessarily what you do so much as how you do it. It’s your processes that provide the bare bones on which the customer or client experience is built.

The role of IT in business has evolved in a very significant manner over the past 30 years, not least over the last decade. Virtually all companies now utilise and heavily rely on IT in a very big way. 
 
Unfortunately, many of them continue to follow the outdated protocol of running their IT infrastructure as a separate entity. In today’s climate, it simply HAS to be embedded within the company’s DNA.
