Organisations are very good at defining strategies, visions, goals and objectives. However, all too often, the translation from IT strategy to delivery is done poorly, so change programmes fail to deliver on the business vision.
When IT strategy is disconnected from business outcomes, there is limited understanding of the full impact of change or of the capability needed to deliver. Strategic planning and project delivery become siloed within business units and there is no overall visibility or accountability. The results are all too familiar, as projects are initiated that never deliver to expectations, are over budget, and are dramatically late.
