Tips for Overcoming IT Bureaucracy, Part 1


The business world is buzzing with talk of automation.  Robotic process automation (RPA) holds incredible potential for increased business productivity and reduced costs, among other benefits.  All sorts of departments can leverage RPA to their advantage – think of automating payroll or never having to manually buy staples again – but it will be your IT department’s job to implement it. 


Maybe you’re already convinced that RPA is in your company’s future; now how do you make that happen?  It depends on how much decision-making power you hold.  Your approach will obviously be different if you’re a starting IT analyst than if you’re an accomplished CEO/CIO.

Either way, we know that companies can be very big with a frustrating amount of bureaucracy.  New IT initiatives can get bogged down in red tape and, without the right buy-in, fail to return benefits for the investment.  The great news is that, unlike IT projects of the past, the process of switching to RPA takes weeks instead of months.

Bureaucracy exists to keep everything running smoothly in a large organization.  Though it can be frustrating, here are some tips for a CEO/CIO navigating a transition to using RPA.

Check back at a later date for tips on overcoming IT bureaucracy for the IT worker!
