Unify stakeholders, build engagement and align the focus of IT investments by making strategic choices in collaboration with the business.

IT advancements are moving at an unprecedented pace. So how can organisations stay informed about emerging technology, ensure desired business impact from the existing systems and get engagement and agreement across the business on new investments?

Defining the purpose: What are the key benefits that IT initiatives should aim for? What are the key business imperatives that IT has a role in fulfilling?

Accelerate and maximise business value

At Implement, we believe that digitalisation strategies and IT strategies should outline how IT will accelerate and maximise business value.

We use three key principles to deliver a successful strategy design process that will deliver real business impact in your organisation.

  1. The digitalisation strategies and IT strategies must be aligned with the corporate strategy. This helps us see how relevant technologies and industry trends can support the current business model and enable new business offerings.
  2. Strategic prioritisation must be defined in collaboration with the business and validated throughout the process to ensure strong commitment and unification.
  3. A strategy must be holistic but focussed and functional to ensure impact. The scope could be enterprise resource planning (ERP), omni-channel, new operating model, analytics, cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), social media etc.

If you want to learn more about digitalisation strategies and IT strategies and how your company can benefit from our approach, please get in touch.

Setting level of ambition: How far should you stretch out to leapfrog competitors into bringing digital initiatives to life? Where should focus (and budget) be placed?
