Creating the Strategic Plan for Today's IT
Source: Forrester Research
IT's strategic plan is an essential tool to run IT like a business. The strategic plan for today's IT is different from the strategic plans that IT may have developed five years ago. It is purpose-driven and a complement to IT governance structures and processes. The structure and content are tailored to this purpose, avoiding the sprawling documents that tried to cover every possible input and aspect of IT strategy. And today's plan must be a living plan, with regular review and updating, thereby providing long-term direction while maintaining relevancy.
