Yes, the growth is brisk. When IT organizations grow, they often call in consultants like me to help them out; and there is very little slack in the consulting market these days. If I could clone myself, I could keep three of me busy!

One approach I've seen functional organizations - like IT and HR - take is to centralize their own core functions and then distribute resources (primarily staff) out to the various business units. It's a sort of hybrid approach that can work well; but you have to have your own IT/HR processes running smoothly prior to doing that (in my opinion). And that's the tough part for many of those organizations.

Thanks for the advice Steve!
