Without the right knowledge and experience, IT projects can spin out of control and impact the performance of an organization. Understanding the stakeholders and business objectives that drive IT systems to optimize return on investments is a key component of success. Failure to understand and align strategic and technical objectives can have serious implications on an organization resulting in loss of client trust, damaged corporate reputations and financial penalties. Leaders need a method of quickly identifying the key stakeholders who are impacted and supported by information technology systems to ensure they are meeting strategic objectives.
