Free gateway to global IT-business skills knowledge.
Issue: Escalating costs and organizational dependency upon IT have increased the pressure to: (1) assure that IT projects and activities are aligned with strategic direction and business plans, (2) make the best IT funding decisions, (3) manage IT projects and activities so that they deliver the promised results on-time and within budget, and (4) continuously learn to do it better.
Purpose: Since so many organizations are trying to cope with the issue, we thought it worthwhile to offer insight into what some leading organizations are doing about it. The IT Investment Management Approach is a composite of these best practices; it serves as a useful benchmark for organizations that are evaluating their own process.
Objective: Our intent is to give you a concise overview of the Approach, instead of an exhaustive explanation of the mechanics of its components. You will learn what the Approach is, how it can help address the issues, how the process works, and some of the factors to consider before adopting the Approach in whole or in part. Take the on-line quiz at the end to see how much you have learned.
