IT Directorship

IT leadership is vital for firms of all sizes.

IT directorship 1

Technology is well recognised as a critical enabler in any modern business. It is also often a major operating expense. Such an important and expensive service requires commensurate strategic planning and direction. However, resourcing this strategic thought-leadership within a small to medium size business can be simply too expensive though. Lights-On can help here.

The IT Directorship proposition from Lights-On allows businesses to acquire industry leading and executive-level technology leadership, but on part-time / consultancy basis. We will develop a lasting relationship providing strategic guidance, acting as part of the ‘leadership team’, and truly understanding the needs of your business. This will ensure your business technology services receive the right level of focus, from industry specialists.
Critical to the success of this service, is Lights-On’s approach to the development and mentoring of your existing IT staff. This service is about making your IT proposition sustainable by identifying and developing talent within the organisation to help them become the strategic leaders the firm requires.

If you perceive a need for director level strategic IT support in your firm, but don’t want the costs of a full-time IT Director, then contact us to have a confidential, no obligation discussion about your needs and how we may help "fill the gap".

We take pride in our ethos of independence, depth of knowledge and ethics

Confidentiality

Consulting is a confidential business and the sectors in which we operate demand even greater levels of confidentiality. We take it very seriously and practice what we preach.

Experience

Experience is as much about learning from mistakes as it is from doing things right first time from planning and consideration.

Independence

That ethos of “if it feels wrong, even if others don’t think it is, then avoid it” remains a strong principle for Lights-On today.

Integrity

Integrity is at the heart of what we do. We are not a regulated industry like the legal sector in which we often operate however we treat work as if we were regulated.

Knowledge

Most of Lights-On’s consultants come from a wide background of IT and management covering sectors as wide as banking, the energy sector, manufacturing and consultancy.
