Plan for Business and Organisational Development

    • Statistical outputs; response burden; cost
    • Co-ordination of Irish Statistical System
    • Internal co-ordination

lessons learned from dms project
Lessons learned from DMS project
  • Data Management System (DMS)
    • Project began in November 2003
    • System went live in September 2007
    • Reviewed in 2009
  • Outcome of review
    • DMS project has delivered a solid platform for capturing and processing statistical data
    • But: far-reaching project – full ambitions not realised
  • Input to IT Strategy
    • DMS is a strategic system – support and develop to meet new needs
    • Consolidate our statistical IT applications
    • Implement new developments on a small scale – need faster benefits realisation
cso s organisational culture
CSO’s organisational culture
  • Culture and communications in a small organisation
    • Informal
    • Based on personal networks more than on formal management processes
    • Flexible - “gets things done”
    • But at a cost ...
    • ad-hoc solutions; sub-optimal decisions
  • Informal management culture not sustainable

cso s it strategy 2010 2012 explaining the rationale
CSO’s IT Strategy 2010-2012- explaining the rationale

The strategy explains the rationale for corporate IT policies.

For example:

Corporate applications (DMS)

Consolidation of corporate toolset (strategic software)

Effect on allocation of IT resources

Rationale:

  • More efficient allocation of IT resources
  • Better response to business requirements
  • Better decision-making
cso s it strategy 2010 2012 enterprise architecture
CSO’s IT Strategy 2010-2012- Enterprise Architecture

The phrase “Enterprise Architecture” is absent from the strategy.

Main target readership: Our staff and managers

We want them to read the strategy.

We want them to understand it.

We want their actions to be consistent with it.

Plain non-technical language makes the message clearer.

We’re using the GSBPM as a communications tool to explain the rationale of the strategy.

putting the gsbpm at the heart of our strategy
Putting the GSBPM at the heart of our strategy
  • GSBPM is referenced throughout the strategy
  • Appendix describes the GSBPM
    • and its contribution to IT and corporate management
  • GSBPM reflected in:
    • Data Management System (DMS)
    • Plans for further statistical application development
  • But model is more than a set of production or IT steps
  • A way of influencing corporate culture
gsbpm and governance
GSBPM and Governance

Good governance

– gives space for proper planning and evaluation

– fosters a culture of quality improvement.

gsbpm and governance changing the culture
GSBPM and Governance- changing the culture

Acceptance that formal processes are worth the effort:

  • Good documentation
  • Consistency of approach across the organisation
  • Planning
  • Monitoring resources and outputs
  • Quality management processes
  • Evaluation
  • Culture of learning and improvement
  • Repeatability
  • Effective response to: new demands, scarce resources, complex high-level objectives
gsbpm and financial management changing the culture
GSBPM and Financial Management- changing the culture

Greater visibility of costs and value of IT contribution:

  • Better cost metrics
  • Map costs to GSBPM Level-1
  • Map costs to business owner areas
  • Improve budgeting and monitoring of IT spending

Improve awareness of costs, choices and consequences when allocating IT resources.

the gsbpm is more than an it framework
The GSBPM is more than an IT framework

GSBPM is often seen as:

  • Description of production processes
  • Description of IT processes
  • “Belonging” to IT

This is a limited view of what the GSBPM can contribute.

“Other uses of the GSBPM” – Section VII of GSBPM document

  • Contribution to Corporate Strategic Planning, Governance, Quality Management, Building Organisational Capability, Measuring Costs, Measuring Performance

These “other uses” are a valuable part of the GSBPM framework.
