Creating and managing an IT budget is a team effort. The IT department head leads the effort but other departments need to have input and help control expenditures, the finance department should provide the systems to control the procurement process and the Executive team needs to make sure that whoever is accountable for the budget has the authority to approve or decline requests for expenditure.
Do you ever wonder why your star IT Manager always fails to take control of the IT budget?
Do you dread those budget meetings because you know there are some IT expenditures that you can’t control?
Do you feel like your IT department takes too long to get you the IT resources you need for your department?
