IT STRATEGY & REVIEW

An IT strategy is typically a long-term action plan for achieving a goal, set in the context of a rapidly changing technology environment. For any IT strategy to be effective it must have measurable links to a business strategy - and it is here that many IT strategies fail.

Oakleigh consulting with their wide experience in both business and technology areas across both public and private sector are accustomed to providing advice as to how best these links may be effectively put in place.

Too often IT strategy is seen as a 'one-off' exercise - perhaps a refresh of last years strategy, with only the buzz-words changed to reflect a changing technology scenario.

In our experience, the most effective IT strategies are those which not only link to a business strategy, but also combine tactics and logistics. We do not claim this as a unique insight - such a view can be traced back to Clause von Clausewitz, often referred to as the 'father of strategy', in his major work 'On War'.

Good stuff Bashir, thank you for the contribution. Suggest a blog to collect all your thoughts in one central location. You can tag individual entries to keep them organized.

It is extremely important for IT to be in support of the Business, working closely to work toward satisfying the organizational strategy set by leadership.
