The esteemed host of our Ask the Expert Series, Colin Scott is a financial services technology executive with more than 25 years as a leader in the industry. Colin has worked with number of enterprise-wide development projects focused on improving the responsiveness of IT to the needs of their business partners — ultimately maximizing IT value.
If you work in a complex IT environment, you face a unique set of challenges when it comes to IT’s role in the business. In “Ask the Expert #1 ”, Colin Scott discusses how IT professionals must strategize and plan while effectively prioritizing different projects and programs.
The three key questions to answer are:
- Are we doing the right things?
- Are we doing them the right way?
- Are we getting them done well?
This is a lot easier said than done. Planning and execution are both huge tasks themselves, and are dependent on each other to truly be successful. Executing a poorly planned project doesn’t mean you succeeded, just as a great plan that never comes to fruition is also deemed a failure. Too often good intentions get lost in arduous processes and projects. Watch the on-demand webcast, Ask The Expert #1, to see Colin’s recommendations.
I am really excited about what this series has to offer, and there’s more to come. Don’t miss “Ask the Expert # 2: How to Capture What the Business Really Wants”.

This series puts participants in the driver seat by serving as an open exchange of ideas, challenges, and solutions.
