Most business leaders agree that their “…technology is mission critical to the success of the organization.” Who then should be planning this aspect of the business? Intuitively, small business owners depend exclusively on their IT Department for their technology planning. It may seem counter-intuitive, but business technology fails because leadership was not involved in planning the technology. As a result, statistically, 50% of technology projects fail. To grow small businesses to large businesses, the technology must grow in alignment with the business mission. Without business leaders, technology fails because the business technology does not fully support the mission of the company.
