6 IT decisions IT shouldn't make

From the November 2002 issue of the Harvard Business Review:

  • How much should we spend on IT?
  • Which business processes should receive our IT dollars?
  • Which IT capabilities need to be companywide?
  • How good do our IT services really need to be?
  • What security and privacy risks will we accept?
  • Whom do we blame if an IT initiative fails?

None of these items come as a surprise. But I’ve often found that management pays more attention to the Harvard Business Review. It’s worth marking down the reference just in case.
