How to maintain business buy-in for an IT project

www.itnews.com [cached]

"Keeping it sold," as former Raytheon CIO Rebecca Rhoads explained it to Dan Roberts and me in our book Confessions of a Successful CIO (Wiley, 2014), is an equally important - and formidable - task for CIOs.
"You've got to be as passionate about whatever that value proposition is in year six as you were in year one," Rhoads told us. "Not everyone has heard it a million times - you have. That was an 'a-ha' for us: how important it was to keep it sold, especially during the tough times." At the time, Rhoads (who is now President of Global Business Services at Raytheon) was leading a complete transformation at the $23.2 aerospace and defense company, which included modernizing and consolidating existing and acquired businesses onto a common platform. The program would take several years and, in many ways, would hinge on Rhoads' ability to nurture the buy-in she received from the get-go. You've got to be as passionate about whatever that value proposition is in year six as you were in year one. - Rebecca Rhoads Like many successful IT leaders, Rhoads had developed strong relationships with her C-suite colleagues - most notably with then-CEO William H. Swanson, with whom Rhoads had worked closely when he was a divisional leader and she his CIO. Those relationships - as well as her constant communication across both the company and her organization - helped strengthen and prolong the strategy for transforming the company. "You need to have a team that shares your vision. But then the team has to make your vision theirs," Rhoads said. "And when they make your vision their vision, now you're off and running." "If that's not happening," she added, "then the change isn't happening."
