IT strategy and planning is today one of the most critical areas for businesses to get right. IT has moved from being a business enabling cost centre, to a critical driver for business success. An appropriate strategic IT plan can deliver fundamental competitive advantages in the market, whereas poor IT planning can result in inefficiencies that strangle business efficiency.

Good IT strategy must balance the requirements of the business with the technology capabilities and financial constraints within IT. Problems arise when IT is unable to meet the expectations of the business, or when IT is unable to communicate a coherent technology plan back to the business.

It is considered good practice to use external assistance in the ongoing IT strategy, planning and review process so that business as usual activities are not negatively impacted and objectives are met.
