Aligning IT With Business Goals Through Strategic Planning
Intel IT has a new strategic planning process that better aligns activities with those of the corporate business groups. It has developed and implemented a new approach that identifies Intel IT's goals and directions over the next two to five years, while fostering a close connection with overall Intel strategies. Over the last three years, focus has been on efficiency and IT simplification, but because of rapid changes in the business environment, it needed to upgrade strategic planning capability to better assess and respond to the future environment. Its strategic planning process needed not only to provide long-term direction for Intel IT leaders, but also to develop strategies to help Intel achieve future goals and objectives.
