Why Read This
This report sets out Forrester's recommendations for how CIOs establish IT strategy development as a continuous process, working alongside business-unit leaders to develop business strategy with associated technology components. Success in applying the framework requires business-unit leaders to see IT as a business partner and not simply as a technology provider. The self-assessment described in this research report and built out in the associated Excel tool helps CIOs and IT leaders identify potential roadblocks to success and opportunities to change the business-IT dynamic.
