When you’ve got a great idea for transforming software development or IT processes in your organization, it can be frustrating. You might have a clear picture of what you can achieve, but often you’re not sure how to get buy-in from key stakeholders, or how to change your company culture.
It can be made more challenging where you’re based as well.
In the US, for example, Deloitte reported in March an increase of 25% in digital transformation budgets, so those who know how to get buy-in are jumping to the front of the queue.
In Europe, it’s a different story. According to a recent survey by Beaming, 77% of IT projects in large UK organizations and 53% of projects in SMEs are stalled because of worries about Brexit. Brexit is a worry in the EU as well, so the same is probably true there, all of which makes getting the buy-in you need even harder.
