The article focuses on technology assessments. Clients' existing technology infrastructure can even impede growth by siphoning off too much money that is poorly spent. An information technology (IT) assessment begins by taking a look at capabilities in a business context including how an organization is administered the capabilities of its technologies, and how well the elements of IT support strategic business plans are thoroughly reviewed. Firms looking to start doing IT assessments for clients should examine themselves and their IT departments first. Firms are also in an experienced position to sell IT assessments to clients once they put their house in order.
