If your company was a racing car...


By ​Helge Skov Djernes, Information Security Management Consultant


Formula 1 racing can be exciting. The party atmosphere, the adrenaline rush, the high efficiency on display in the pit stops. The driving is only part of a team’s success. The drivers must have hyper-efficient teams ready to service their cars in seconds. Driving talent and car quality matter, but the seconds in the pit stops must be kept minimal to take the trophy at the end. We must be similarly efficient in servicing our companies to beat the competition in our industries. Time and money are always tight, so our success depends on useful company metrics to guide our efforts.

Useful company metrics require data from the interplay of people, processes and technology. When we map this interplay in a suitable software package and link the delivery processes to business goals, data helps us predict where an improvement will benefit our business the most.

The main obstacles for acquiring this capability tend to be missing alignment of how the company aims to achieve its business goals and a lack of updated documentation of the interplay of people, processes and technology. Digital transformation is accelerating the rate of change in all industries. Your company may not be a racing car but it must be handled like one to win.
