Business partnership is key. Alignment of goals & strategy between business and IT will assure efficient and effective IT investments; selecting the most effective projects, the proper operational focus. Effective partnership for IT is only possible with a solid track record: stable operations, structural cost management and reliable project delivery.

With proper delegation of authority an atmosphere of trust and commitment is created; own initiative and guts will lead to a can-do mentality and an organisation that delivers.
