An ICT Strategic Plan - More than Just a Paperweight?
Conclusion: Very few organisations have effective ICT strategic planning processes resulting in a poor return of investment for ICT assets and missed business opportunities.
Do not confuse ICT strategic plans with technical ICT plans. ICT strategic plans are business oriented and focus on the future systems portfolio and its contribution to future business priorities. Technical ICT plans simply focus on the technology investments an organisation needs to make over time. A technology plan will be just one of many deliverables from an effective ICT strategic plan.
