If you’ve been thinking about getting a personal trainer to help you shed some kilos and hit those fitness goals this year, engaging an expert can be a great idea.
But you should always ask this one thing:
“What does ‘fit’ mean to you?”
Is it strength, is it flexibility, is it weight loss? Because if your trainer’s plan involves deadlifts and mass calories and your goal was to drop two dress sizes, it’s going to lead to disappointment.
What does this have to do with my business?
Like physical fitness, taking a one-size-fits-all approach to your business technology can quickly mean unmet expectations and sunk costs.
When your IT provider has nothing more than a cursory conversation about your IT requirements, you’re missing out on the opportunity to use this somewhat significant investment as a business advantage.
How to get your business technology-fit
It’s important you have an IT provider who takes the time to understand what ‘technology-fit’ means to your business.
They should discuss your goals for the next two to three years, then use that information to develop strategies and recommend technologies that enhance the performance of your business. By understanding where your organisation is heading, they can recommend new technologies as they become available.
At Calvert we pride ourselves on taking a business-first approach to ensure your technology properly serves your business and provides the greatest positive impact possible.
