Information Technology (IT)
Among the most challenging issues facing governments today is how to use IT effectively and cost-efficiently. IT is a critical tool for enabling the government to deliver more and higher-quality services to more constituents. However, many government agencies have experienced IT’s downside—systems that don’t deliver the desired functionality, cost overruns, premature obsolescence, and severe procurement problems.
We help our clients manage or avoid many of the most common IT-related pitfalls. As a result, we have developed a distinctive perspective on infrastructure transformation, IT architecture and application modernization, and technology-driven data.
Governmental agencies are among the most complex organizations in nearly every country in the world. They often are large, have multiple objectives, and face increasing demands to deliver more services at a lower cost. As a result of this complexity, JS Morlu, LLC routinely helps government clients on organizational issues, including:
- Shaping major reform programs, including changing mind-sets and behaviors and transforming overall performance.
- Redesigning their organizations and their interaction with stakeholders.
- Building leadership capacity, creating talent management strategies, and enhancing organization wide capabilities.
