An organisation’s ICT strategy must be linked to its corporate future vision through systematic analysis of the business environment. Transformational change often means taking on increasingly large and complex ICT project portfolio, innovative initiatives and the latest digital services – and increasing concerns around the risk of project failure, service availability, and security breaches.
This course examines the rationale for ICT strategy and the reasons why an organisation might need a governance framework. The key areas explored include: market trends that could enable or disrupt an organisation’s services; the impact of digital technology changes on human capital; and key issues, risks, constraints and cost implications associated with modern technology choices and ICT service provision.
Delegates will learn how to create a robust ICT strategy and how to implement it. They will also explore well-established assurance techniques and critical governance structures and roles.
