IT Organizational Design: Supporting Venture-Oriented Teams
This IDC Perspective discusses the challenges faced by start-ups, heavily scientific researchers, and early capital development ventures as they structure digital capabilities to enable progress from intense early research through growth and recapitalization. Where the traditional centralized IT function would be challenged to bring capabilities and day-to-day insight close enough to the research activities as the organization grows, a federated IT function may contribute to the balance between business proximity supported by trusted IT foundations.
"This federated model for the IT organization may represent an interesting balancing model for the future of innovation delivery," says Joe Pucciarelli, group vice president with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "The emphasis is on having a highly mature team of business stakeholders who share a bias toward the highest-value investment in a culture of accountability and discipline."
