Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

“Are we there yet?”

Many people will be traveling during the upcoming holiday season. When I was a kid my family would travel for many hours to see family that lived several states away. It did not take long for my parents to get tired of the question, “are we there yet?” To me it seemed like an endless progression of miles to finally reach our destination.

Similarly, many IT organizations are busy getting things done in a never ending flurry of activity that leaves many wondering what the purpose of that activity really is. This frequently means that a lot of money, effort and activity are put into IT projects that just don’t seem to reach an end or satisfy customers. Unfortunately, much of the activity itself is not focused on a consistent strategy that really defines where we are going, and therefore we cannot answer the question, “are we there yet?”

So, what does strategy mean for you? Does your organization have a “strategy”?
•How do you translate strategy into action, make it work, make it relevant?
•How do you know when it is time to revisit your strategy based on results?
•Has cloud computing added complexity to your strategy?
