    CIOs and IT leaders haven't done enough business planning to prevent disruption when the U.K.'s transition out of the EU is completed.

    The key strategic questions are about the capacity and capability to conduct business operations, both in the present and future.

    CIOs must connect these questions to the overall IT strategy in terms of investments and digital business transformation.

    Organisations able to demonstrate resilience are more likely to minimize short- and long-term disruptions to their operations.

    IT Roadmap for Digital Business Transformation

    Unexpected or last-minute IT tasks required for Brexit may temporarily reduce the capacity of the organisation to implement wider digital innovation. CIOs and IT leaders can avoid common pitfalls and lead smart, effective digital transformations by following these best practices.

    Maximising Business Efficiency and Continuity

    The U.K. government is investing in digital solutions, with additional funding to help handle complexity in Northern Ireland where both the U.K. and the EU regulations continue to overlap. Technology solutions can automate complexity, submit customs declarations and manage taxes digitally to significantly reduce trade friction.

    Scenario Planning Guide

    Scenario planning is common at the organisational level to make strategic plans more robust and resilient. In today’s Brexit times, scenario planning is equally critical at the functional level, and functional leaders can leverage it to make small but powerful changes today.
