Today we are going to discuss keeping your Stakeholders in the loop when making changes. For managed services providers that means obvious items such as new computers, networking, and new employees. Clients should also remember to keep their managed services provider in the loop for other items such as a new phone system, new software, or any new IOT devices such as thermostats or lighting. All of these items will have ramifications on the network and security of your business.
This also pertains to any decision in your business. Always consider all of the stakeholders. If you are making a financial decision such as switching banks, purchasing additional insurance, or making a financial decision you may want to touch base with your CPA, banker, finance company, insurance agent, or financial advisor. Every decision made for a business can have unknown ramifications so we want to make sure we discuss our decisions with all of our trusted advisors.
