Creating Value
Assignment Overview
The case for this module is about understanding the development of IT strategies that support and are supported by business strategy. Given the large amount of investments in IT, companies need to get high IT business value. To do that, a good IT strategy is essential.
In the first reading, Smith et al. (2007) discuss five critical success factors that organizations must consider in creating an IT strategy within an organization. For example, they say that one of the most important factors is that senior managers in high performing companies take a leadership role in IT decision making (p.54). The authors discuss other factors that were identified in the focus groups conducted with IT managers from 15 different organizations. In addition, they present some of the best practices and challenges faced by those IT managers while developing their IT strategies.
