Business and IT leaders often face a big dilemma when it comes to a budget time.
- “What will our new financial year’s IT investment look like?”
- “What business priorities will we address? “
- “What shall I invest first? “
- “Will the investment contribute to our organisation’s future state? Or will it be a sunk cost?”
These are just a few questions that they seek to answer.
It is not surprising. Until now, the most common practice for IT investment planning is to throw in what I call a last-minute shopping list. This shopping list is then used to create budget estimates without anyone’s true understanding whether or not the items on the list would address business priorities, gain an organisation competitive advantage over its competitors, resolve critical pain points, result in major savings, lay foundation for future investment etc. etc.
In short, a budget approver should be able to answer one simple question:
“Is my money spent in the right place at the right time?”
