Tristin King



Kowhai – Contract Project Lead

TANZ eCampus

Tristin believes that technology teams (be they permanent or project teams) are frequently guilty of losing sight of why they exist and also, what is the value (to the business) of the service they provide. In a business context, the technology unit does not exist to be a gatekeeper, nor does it exist to wrap layers of automation around “broken” processes. He thinks for a technology unit to be successful it must: -Understand not only what the business does but why they do it -Provide a right-size level of governance that facilitates delivery of business objectives without hindrance -Have a strategic vision with a horizon more distant than the business itself, IT must anticipate and not react -Be built on a foundation of like-minded and business-focused individuals with a common set of goals and values -Communicate with the business in a language that the business understands, IT facilitates business decisions but should not make decisions for the business. Tristin builds teams around the above in order to ensure successful delivery of key technology initiatives and transformation.
