Description

How similar are CEOs and CIOs in their interest in IT benchmarks? Where do their interests diverge? This presentation, based on data from Capers Jones shows how IT benchmarks play with both inside and outside IT. In addition to CEOs and CIOs, the presentation contains interest levels for CFOs, CTOs, and various functional roles within IT including architects and project managers.

Are CEOs Interested in the Same Benchmarks as CIOs? Data from Capers Jones Data File: BenchmarkTypes 2013 v3.xls

The Data Set The data set consists of 60 benchmarks and 10 audiences For each benchmark (e.g. ROI) and each audience type (e.g. CIOs), a level of interest in the benchmark is recorded The interest level scale goes from 1 (no interest) to 10 (extremely interested) There are 10 audiences in the data set: Shareholders, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CTOs, Business Managers, Project Managers, Technical Staff, SQA Staff, and Clients     2

The Analysis Key Questions:    Which audiences are similar or dissimilar in their interests and to what extent? Which benchmarks are particular audiences interested or not interested in? The Approach     3 Correlation tables to quantify the extent to which different audiences are similar (or different) Grouping of benchmarks into categories such as Delivery, Risk, etc. to zoom in on similarities or differences in interest within each category Understanding patterns of interest and disinterest between audiences (see below)

Grouping Benchmarks into Categories Business Benchmarks Risk Benchmarks Delivery Benchmarks Quality Benchmarks Process Maturity Benchmarks Cost Benchmarks 4

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across All Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for each audience pair. o The oranges and dark yellows indicate high levels of similarity in interest or disinterest. For example, CFOs and Shareholders (row 1, cell 3) are highly similar in the benchmarks they are and are not interested in (correlation = 0.9). o In contrast, Business Managers and Tech Staff are highly dissimilar in their 5 interests.

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Business Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the business benchmarks for each audience pair. o The oranges and dark yellows indicate high levels of similarity in interest or disinterest. In contrast, the blue shades indicate high levels of dissimilarity – CEOs are very different from all other stakeholders as seen in row 2. o CFOs, CIOs, and CTOs are quite similar in their interests (or lack thereof) in the the business metrics. 6

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Delivery Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the delivery benchmarks for each audience pair. o Looking for rectangular patches of orange and dark yellow, we see that CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs are quite aligned in their interests; so are Project Managers, Tech Staff, and SQA staff. 7

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Risk Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the Risk benchmarks for each audience pair. o It is very clear from the swath of red on the top left of the correlation table that Shareholders, CEOs, C FOs, CIOs, and CTOs are united in their interest (or lack thereof) in the Risk benchmarks. 8

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Process Maturity Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the Process Maturity benchmarks for each audience pair. o It is very clear from the swath of red on the top left of the correlation table that Shareholders, CEOs, C FOs, and to a large extent, CIOs, are united in their interest (or lack thereof) in the Process Maturity benchmarks. 9

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Quality Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the Quality benchmarks for each audience pair. o It is very clear from the swath of red on the top left of the correlation table that Shareholders, CEOs, CFOs, and to some extent, CIOs, and CTOs are united in their interest (or lack thereof) in the Quality benchmarks. o Tech Staff are quite different from all other stakeholders in their interest levels to Quality benchmarks. 10

Similarity and Dissimilarity Across Cost Benchmarks o The table on the left shows the correlation in interest scores for the Cost benchmarks for each audience pair. o There are a number of patches of similarity (Shareholders & CEOs; CFOs & CIOs; SQA & Client) and dissimilarity (dark and light blue patches). o Notice in particular that Shareholders and CEOs are quite different from CFOs, CIOs, CTOs, and Business Managers. 11

How similar are CIOs to CEOs? CIOs are often said to not think like CEOs – indeed, this has often been cited as a reason for why IT has not fulfilled its potential to deliver business value in many organizations. How do the interests of CIOs and CEOs align across our benchmarks? To study this question, we looked for the following 7 patterns:  Pattern 1: Benchmarks both CIOs and CEOs are interested in  Pattern 2: Benchmarks both CIOs and CEOs are not interested in  Pattern 3: Benchmarks that CIOs are interested in but CEOs are not interested in  Pattern 4: Benchmarks that CIOs are not interested in but CEOs are interested in  Pattern 5: Benchmarks that both CIOs and CEOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting  Pattern 6: Benchmarks that CIOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting but CEOs find interesting  Pattern 7: Benchmarks that CIOs are interested in but CEOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting Interesting: Interest Score >= 8 Not Interesting: Interest Score <= 4 Neither Interesting Nor Uninteresting: Interest Scores of 5, 6, or 7 12

Benchmarks both CIOs and CEOs are interested in 13

Further patterns of similarity and dissimilarity between CIOs and CEOs Patterns Benchmarks Pattern 2: Benchmarks both CIOs and CEOs are not interested in None Pattern 3: Benchmarks that CIOs are interested in but CEOs are not interested in Productivity - activity, Serviceability benchmarks Pattern 4: Benchmarks that CIOs are not interested in but CEOs are interested in None Pattern 5: Benchmarks that both CIOs and CEOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting Earned value (EVA), Application types, CMMI levels within industries, Standards benchmarks Pattern 6: Benchmarks that CIOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting but CEOs find interesting Industry Productivity Pattern 7: Benchmarks that CIOs are interested in but CEOs find neither interesting nor uninteresting Best Practices - requirements, Team attrition rates, Best Practices - defect prevention, Best Practices - pre-test defects, Coding speed, Code quality (only code - nothing else), Cost per defect (caution: unreliable), Best Practices - design, Test coverage benchmarks, Methodology comparisons, Litigation - employment contracts 14
