Developing an IT Strategy for your HEI

Ian McKenzie - UL

This session will map out the process to develop an IT strategy for a higher education organisation. The session will provide a practical framework which can be adapted to any institution with the focus on presenting a blueprint for organisations to follow to develop a strategy to suit their own environment. The development and critical nature of developing an overarching set of philosophy and principles for the IT group will be addressed.

The session will examine the process required to build strategic alignment with the institutionís wider strategic plan and the business model of the organisation. Integrating IT Governance into the strategy will be examined as will supply and control elements necessary to articulate the supporting IT Operating Plan required delivering against the annually adjusted IT priorities.
