This morning I’ll tackle the rest of my wiring closet, then local phone company to come by to determine why primary line is continually business which is what kicked off relocating and revising wiring closet. In the meantime, I’m back to researching using Candlestick Charting as a means for the Modern IT Portfolio Management concepts I’ve been developing the past years. I’ve been keeping tabs on the options theory materials I’ve deployed at former employers and clients. The results infer the approach works well; the clients that I monitor have been reporting increased business capabilities at a faster rate than prior and improved business results in the line of businesses that were supported.
I wouldn’t go as far as saying this is conclusive evidence that the portfolio approach I deployed was causal for improved business results –some of the contribution loop training I received long ago– but I do see a correlation and would conclude effective IT Portfolio Management contributes to improved business results. The South African engagement I supported remotely for a client would have been a good test case; however, we didn’t have the time nor client have the funding to do a baseline for analyzing the effects creating BI and Collaboration capabilities in the enterprise. I did specify how they could automatically track results and use predictive analytics backwards to create a baseline for analysis later. I’d be interested in tacking a trip there one day to see the results and add the marketing analytics they wanted to do in phase two. In the meantime its off to brainstorming about what indicators to use for IT Ecosystem Candlestick charting.
