CIOs: Try these simple tasks to better align IT to the business

Former GE CIO Charlene Begley highlights ways she helped align IT to the rest of the business that other IT leaders can do in their own organizations. “When I was at GE, we worked closely with each of the business functions to really understand their processes and see how we could align our teams, our goals, and our objectives to simplify, streamline, and speed up those processes. And I’ve got to tell you, it was easy to do because, in today’s day and age, IT truly does enable everything. The bigger challenge was prioritizing what to do and in what order to do it in.”
