Infrastructure & Operations

Manage resources on facts, not emotions

There’s constant tug-of-war between I&O and the business. But nobody ever wins.

I&O is between a rock and a hard place – sustaining what the business needs, while trying to deliver everything it wants. Stakeholders rarely understand and only ask for more. Without hard facts, I&O is left unarmed to manage the conversation.
