Taking a Look at OBASHI in action

""Do you wish that the IT and business of your organization could become more like-minded? While, the two components will probably never share the same brain, they can share a better understanding of each other. Claire Agutter of the ITSM Review recommends the OBASHI method to increase efficiency in IT management. OBASHI stands for:

    •Ownership

    •Business

    •Application

    •System

    •Hardware

    •Infrastructure

Even if your organization is already doing an excellent job with project management, there are always ways to improve. That’s where OBASI comes in, and no organization is too big or too small to use it. In fact, OBASHI works well even as a complement to ITIL or other methodologies that your organization is already using.

The key is to adopt OBASHI as you see fit, as a way to understand and optimize dataflows when needed. Agutter suggests you ask yourself a few questions. Is our organization struggling to prioritize investments? Does the business think IT doesn’t understand them? Does the business see IT as a cost center and not a valuable part of the organization? If so, it may be time to try OBASHI.
