IT departments can be reorganized for a variety of reasons. When that reason is downsizing due to cost reductions, the required changes can be drastic and stressful. Coordinating the details of who will handle what going forward may feel rather like putting together a puzzle with too many pieces.
This research note addresses:
- Logical entry-points into the role redefinition and reorganization process.
- Taking a skills-grouping approach for thorough results.
- Forming balanced roles and reporting structures.
- Recommendations for role transition.
While no tried-and-true method exists, be as systematic as possible to achieve best results.
