A tool for assessing how the existing IT execution and management supports the overall competitiveness of the company to achieve more market-share, better margins, and smoother operation.
ITCq - is a short, web delivered survey made for CEOs. It gauges your organization's likelihood of getting value from IT and the overcoming barriers to competitiveness.
It’s a tool that helps CEOs improve the overall performance and value of their IT operations by measuring and addressing factors aligned with the seven principles of competitiveness through technology.
Unlike broad audits and surveys, ITCq is specifically designed as a management action tool. Each question is defined by a series of standard behaviors that, if identified as being low, can be strengthened to improve the level of execution and, in turn, positively impact results.
Thriving organizations manage and execute their IT in line with their most important objectives. The inability to align IT with the company’s' changing business model is a universal problem that has been defined as one of the greatest challenges of business today.
