This leads me to a topic I have seen bounding around recently. Maybe we don’t all need a strategic technology plan. At first, you have to focus on a stable infrastructure.
As a terrific example, Idealware has created their Tactical Technology Training, which I LOVE!
But we all know a strategic plan is needed for deeper impact of our technology. Which I would recommend the Tech Leadership Academy from NTEN.
However, the contender I want to bring to the ring is MISSION.
Sure our Strategic Technology Plan is tied to mission via a close tie to the organization’s overall Strategic Plan. But what about stepping back to find ways for technology to directly impact the mission, not to support the org in meeting the mission. Do you see the distinction?
Here are a couple slides to illustrate this, but I would love for a few people to watch the video embedded below and give me some real feedback. I will be refining the concept, slides and presentation between now and March 2014. This is just a sampling of what will be discussed there, but I could really use your feedback!
