Free practical guide to business and technology strategy

  • Five key steps
  • How to engage stakeholders
  • Deciding the process
  • Essential tools and frameworks
  • Where to find resources

An essential guide to how to identify the opportunities and threats from digital technology and engage the organisation in transformation.  The guide addresses IT strategy and business strategy as a integrated process.

This guide will help you to accelerate your business and technology strategy.

I’ve written this guide for anyone who needs to create a business and technology strategy.

  • You don’t have to be expert in strategic analysis to use it
  • You decide how far you go in terms of detail
  • It deals with engagement and with transformation right from the start – it is designed to be useful when major change will occur
  • It covers all factors including organisation, technology and culture
  • You can you use it in any context: a formal IT strategy or a strategy for a new team or function.
  • It focuses only on what needs changing.

Most of all, this is an approach which can become part of the way you think about every change you want to make.

If you use this approach you will succeed in bringing people with you. And a real outcome will result. You may also produce an attractive document or slide deck, or video which describes your future direction and how you propose to get there. But here is odd thing.

The strategy document itself is never more important than winning the hearts and minds of the people who will make the transformation real.
