Rolls-Royce plc – IT strategy development
Robert Pitt


Rolls-Royce Group is a diverse set of businesses based in North America, UK, Norway and increasingly in China and emerging markets. Rolls-Royce needed to develop a common agenda, agree innovation priorities and define governance to ensure the right balance between group and business unit needs.

Working with the IT Director and business unit heads, Robert led a team to develop a group IT strategy, assessing the needs of each business unit (Energy, Defence, Civil Aviation, and Marine) and setting out the strategic imperatives, architecture, governance and roadmap going forwards.

This work won approval at Board level of a fundamental shift in the governance of IT globally and the prioritisation of each business unit’s requirements. It has subsequently resulted in a significant reduction in overall IT expenditure and led to an increase in strategic IT investment.
