From the Advice Worth Keeping podcast series
Hosted by Stan Lepeak, Global Research Director,
KPMG LLP Management Consulting


IT organizations often find themselves playing defense against a business that pushes additional requirements while expecting better results at a lower cost. Simultaneously, technology advances make it crucial that IT emerge from a back-office function to a strategic partner.

In this podcast, Joe Koester, a Managing Director in KPMG’s CIO Advisory practice, sits down with Stan Lepeak to discuss:

  • What it takes for the typical IT organization to evolve from a delivery role to that of a broker
  • How to determine between IT capabilities that are strategic and those that will likely remain more commoditized
  • Insight for CIOs looking to strike the right balance of operational and strategic development


Duration: Approximately 13 minutes.  Activate the recording with the play button over the image.


Joe had a previous conversation with Stan about the value of IT service management (ITSM) for CIO’s wishing to improve their relevance and operational effectiveness:Listen to the companion podcast, Strategic IT: Connecting the dots
