    IT and business, friend or foe?

    Whether you like it or not, within a company distance quickly develops between the different departments. Management assumes that everyone knows the business strategy, and that they act accordingly. But this is often not the case.

    Take your company's IT facilities, for example. They determine your work processes, and therefore have a major impact on the efficiency and profitability of your company. But because of the nature of their jobs, technicians and managers have very limited understanding of each other's work. Therefore, expectations of each other's capabilities are often far apart, and misunderstandings regularly arise between the IT department and management. And this us-them thinking can cause tensions.

    Communication is the key

    To bridge this distance, you will need to make a translation. Do your best to learn more about your IT staff's field of work. For example, have regular discussions with them about the possibilities and limitations of current IT systems. Share the problems the organisation is facing, and place these within the context of your business goals. This will bring the two worlds closer together, and you can start working together on the basis of common goals.

    The translation

    Of course, this translation requires a considerable investment from both the management and the IT department. It takes time and effort to get to know each other's perspective. Instead, you can hire or hire a person to do the translating. Someone who can communicate effectively with both management and technicians. A technician with a business education, for example, or a manager with a technical background. SevenLab is specialized in this.

    Efficient focus on your business ambitions

    Once you have made the translation between business and technology, you can move forward quickly. By aligning your IT processes with your business ambitions, you make them more efficient and save time and money. In addition, your IT staff or intermediary can provide technical solutions to drive development. This ensures that everyone is working towards the same goal, and your organisation grows according to your vision.
