Is your Strategy and Vision stale after a few months? Does it take forever to determine the impact of
market and technology changes?
Adapt your strategy and vision dynamically as markets and technology change via tools from the IT
No individual can know everything. In order to put together an effective strategy you need to integrate
the ideas and research of a large and diverse team. A methodical process is needed to bring those
ideas and associated analysis to the strategic level on an ongoing basis. As technology and market
forces are always changing, strategy should adapt when new technology becomes available. When the market place changes you should recalculate your strategy in near real time.
IT Maturity tools can be used to gather and engage your larger team near real time, enabling and
compelling your team to look at strategic and business advantages across every process and sub-process daily.
One of the newest fads is to have internet searchers on staff. Don’t buy it. You need tools for the
entire team to do searches on their respective business functions daily. Multiple different types of
directed searches can be put into role based portals which update regularly. Corporate news and
knowledge on portals should be supplemented with searches into diverse categories of information (e.g
. patents, journals, markets, news, web, ...) for each of your team’s diverse business functions.
Going further the IT Maturity Method creates tracking and metrics of your personnel’s usage of those
business function searches and how the searches are then turned into business realization and value.
The IT Maturity Method enables near real time Strategy and Vision evolution via integrated business function, business value, technology, and vendor maps.
