ITMore prosaically, I spent part of my afternoon chairing a meeting of the Committee’s IT Steering Committee. A lot of IT projects require long lead times and major investment, and because of that and a lack of governance structures, organisations quite frequently find themselves out of kilter with their IT services or confronted with what seem to be faits accomplis. The Steering Committee is there to provide that necessary level of governance and ensure that we have shared priorities and goals. Our IT applications are a major interface between the administration and our members and it was gratifying to see how major progress is being made across the board.
