Technology Vision™

What is Technology Vision™? Technology Vision™ is about determining, developing and implementing a coordinated roadmap to employ technology to maximize the performance, productivity and return on investment of the entire enterprise. Technology Vision™ is about realizing your vision of the "forest" - maintaining perspective about how to gainfully employ a complex technology program that nurtures projects and activities ("trees and bark") without getting lost on the details of specific activities or projects that are falling behind. Put another way, Technology Vision™ is about not getting "lost in the bark." Do you have a well stated, comprehensive Technology Vision™ for your business? How does technology support and compliment your business objectives, strategy and plans? Most businesses have never taken the time to pause and review technology from such a strategic approach, instead being consumed by the tactical problems of day-to-day operations. Talk to us about how technology is being used in your business - a little Technology Vision™ might take your entire operation to the next level.

Oversight, Reviews & Strategy

V2E Group can perform a variety of Oversight, Review & Strategy development efforts; these "second opinion" or "check up" services often provide much needed external perspective to quickly insure that efforts are on time, on track and on budget. As mentioned in the discussion of our Methodology for applying Vision, Strategy, Management and Execution in a unified manner to achieve business success; most businesses depart from the Vision when it comes time to develop or implement Strategy. Critical, risky or underperforming parts of a business may need oversight, review, or strategy development. The scope of the effort could be limited to a single project or business process, or it could be as broad as an evaluation of how technology is used throughout the enterprise.

Oversight services go beyond the scope of a simple "check up" - they imply an ongoing, operational improvement "area of responsibility" (AOR). Oversight services can be used to balance the strength of a prime contractor in an outsourcing situation. Oversight services can also be used to help manage complex technologies, difficult projects or major process reengineering efforts.

Reviews are the most common first effort between V2E Group and a client. How well is Information Technology performing against a best practices standard? Where is there room for improvement? What are the easy wins and which projects are so difficult as to warrant bypassing them owing to risk? Reviews can be limited in scope to target a specific business process or project to quickly find a much needed solution, resolution or competitive advantage. Reviews can also be very broad - often we are asked to either provide a scorecard for the use information technology throughout a business, or to conduct an inventory of how technology is employed (and can be better employed) in a large enterprise or national government structure. Reviews can also be used as part of a pre-litigation evaluation where the business believes that it hasn't received the value promised by an outside provider. That review role often migrates to an expert witness role should the business continue toward litigation and settlement of a formal dispute.

Strategy sounds like it would be easy, but developing and executing a winning strategy is one of the most difficult business activities to complete. Strategy means having the data to have a Plan that can be Executed with certainty of success measurable, quantifiable, traceable success. Strategy means on time, on budget, and with the expected quality result. Ask yourself, does that happen often with your information technology projects and initiatives, or do you fight fires, fail to meet deadlines, postpone or scrap projects and programs, or simply cannot take on all the effort necessary to meet business goals and objectives. Most reviews reveal errors in business strategy. If staff and management get "lost in the bark" and cannot focus on the "forest and trees" that symbolize business success, then it is clearly time for a little external perspective and strategy development. It is amazing how many times we have used strategy development to turn around projects or programs that were in essence "going nowhere" - turned them into highly successful technology killers that knock out the competition. If you are not getting information technology delivered consistently on time, on budget, and with the expected quality result; then you need to look outside to find a helpful partner to deliver some strategy development assistance.

Talk to us about how oversight, reviews and strategy development can be the cost effective "check up" or "remedy" that resolves your business technology concerns and gets you firmly on track toward realizing your Technology Vision™.

Project Execution & Outsourcing

Sometimes it makes sense to bring in more than just a pair of hands, perhaps an entire team instead-- our project execution and outsourcing services let your internal resources focus on what they do best and insure success of critical projects and business objectives requiring specialized resources. Perhaps you need to program a series of customizations to an enterprise software system like Oracle, Peoplesoft or SAP. Perhaps you need to quickly pilot a new technology or development project, your staff is already fully committed or they don't have depth of experience in that area. Outsourcing the project makes sense in these situations. In other situations, it makes good sense to hire a minority contractor to foster a competitive spirit with a complacent majority contractor. Sometimes there are skillsets that are needed, but for which you desired to not make an internal investment in human capital - these are clear outsourcing opportunities. Whether your project and outsourcing needs are crystal clear, or like many, you simply know that you don't have the staff to get everything done; it couldn't hurt your business to at least talk to us about project execution & outsourcing services.

Interim & Long Term Staffing

If you are looking for that great next hire or just need the right extra pair of hands for a few weeks or a few months, we can help you with Interim & Long Term Staffing placement. Perhaps your CIO, CTO or another senior staff member has announced their departure from your firm and you need an immediate seasoned resource to provide continuity during the transition period. Maybe you need to apply resources over a short period to make a technology more manageable - a little expert attention might get things well enough under control so that more junior staff can easily manage things over the long term. These are examples of Interim staffing needs. Perhaps you're looking to make a permanent hire - what does it cost your organization to go out and find that individual? Qualified talent in high demand areas is always hard to find - you've got to explore whatever means necessary to make these critical hires in a cost effective manner. V2E Group can help your technology and human resources professionals in finding, screening and successfully hiring these critical positions. If you have open positions or a possible interrim staffing requirement, it won't hurt you to talk to us.

Training & Staff Development

Employees are usually the most expensive resource required by an enterprise to meet its business objectives. Inadequate training and staff development are often the reasons why businesses fail to execute strategies successfully to reach their vision. This is unfortunate since training and staff development is one of the most cost effective ways to improve performance and productivity. It all starts with mapping requirements and skills set to a training and staff development plan. As your trusted advisor, V2E Group can quickly provide the external perspective to get "out of the bark" and get back to the "forest and the trees" to develop a logical training and staff development plan that makes the best use of your investment in human capital and ensures the maximum return for the minimum measured expense. V2E Group can also deliver training and staff development workshops customized to your needs in over 300 technology skill areas from basic computer skills to complex enterprise software suites (like Oracle, Peoplesoft, SAP, etc) to soft skills like leadership development and management skills. If you have human resources employed in technology, you should at least contact us to review your training and staff development plan. You might be surprised at our insights.
