Strategic Planning 2.0 takes us beyond alignment to the "confluence" of
business strategy and the IT strategy and the employment of Web 2.0
technologies.. The outcome is an IT strategic plan
- Sets out how IT is
expected to be used across an enterprise in the future. It describes how
information technology will support the enterprise’s business objectives,
thereby, aligning IT with the business direction.
- Considers the changes an
enterprise is facing -- both internally and externally -- and the potential IT
and e-business opportunities available to it. IT and e-business opportunities
might include ways to use technology to gain competitive advantage, to reduce
cost, increase revenue, improve the efficiencies of the value chain, etc. IT
and e-business opportunities are weighted against the strengths and weaknesses
of the current environment – both technologically and organizationally – to
determine what strategy to pursue. Partnering options are examined as well.
- Lays out the directions that
the organization must pursue, the IT architecture necessary to achieve the
strategy and the specific projects necessary for implementing the architecture
and IT opportunities. The strategy also lays out the degree of change required
of the IT organization – vision, cultural style, organizational structure,
staffing, skills, processes, and governance – which is necessary to deploy the
strategy and achieve success.
