TEAMS Information Technology Solutions (ITS) Approach
Addressing a New Reality
In today’s world of ever increasing complexity, even common issues defy simplistic solutions. "Obvious" answers often prove inadequate upon further research and analysis. Devising a workable solution requires addressing a myriad of direct and indirect issues, conflicting goals and priorities, and often, overwhelming technical detail. Attaining buy-in and support from affected stakeholders means reducing complex concepts and plans to digestible proportions without losing the underlying message. Implementing the solution requires constant vigilance. Additional issues and challenges arise. Other priorities draw resources and play havoc with schedules. Without flexibility to respond to these changing demands, even the best solutions falter.
Organizations must accept this reality. The world is becoming more interconnected and complex, not less. Organizations prepared to handle this reality will find opportunities for growth and success; those unprepared will face an intolerable array of unsolvable issues. To succeed, we must devise problem-solving approaches that challenge conventional wisdom and reduce complexity to manageable proportions. To this end, The TEAMS Group devised its TEAMS ITS Approach to IT problem-solving.
