Status Quo—The Silent Killer
May/June 2010 (vol. 12 no. 3)
pp. 61-64
Tom Costello, UpStreme

In a slow economy, most firms find themselves in a "status quo" stance. After taking organization-wide cost-cutting measures, executives often look to IT to create value. This expectation during a down cycle isn't typically aligned with the retrenchment stance. Taking certain steps, including developing and discussing a series of diagrams, can improve IT management in the down market and position IT and the organization for the future uptick.

Index Terms:
IT Value, technology impact curve, "status quo", business growth curve, alignment, corporate objectives, information technology
