Why IT Transformations Fail
But the reasons why IT Transformations fail are as numerous as grains of sands on the beach. This paper will cover some of the more common reasons why IT Transformations fail and also provide some guidance on how to avoid the major pitfalls. In a previous paper (Finding a Transformation Partner), this paper discussed how companies chose a Transformation Partner. But what causes companies to decide to transform? It is almost always an external event: (i.e. Regulation, Competition, and New Leadership) that triggers a transformation, but no matter what the cause, all Transformations have the same basic premise.
