“Wouldn’t it be great if…” How to plan a big IT project
Posted May 1, 2023

If you have business systems that feel like they need bringing into the 2020s, you might be  thinking about a major IT project.

And that can mean a big commitment – of time, money, effort and headspace.

That’s why it’s so important to plan and prepare before you press go on any big IT project.

We’re here for advice at any time. But no one knows your business better than you.

So before you get experts involved, take some time to get these three things straight in your own mind.

First is to understand how you got to this point. Is this just about IT, or do you need to look at your processes and your workflow?

Are your team doing daily tasks as a workaround for something your current system was never designed to do?

If there’s an opportunity to simplify your processes, everything becomes easier – including this IT project!

Second is to define everything you want to achieve in your ideal world. Write down all your questions that start with: “Wouldn’t it be great if…”

And third is to think further ahead to your business as it might look in two, three, five years from now.

Design systems that can evolve. And your future self will want to reach back in time and shake you by the hand.

When you’re ready to plan, we’re here to support you all the way, with expert help, clear advice and all the technical support you need.
