Executives tell Gartner that they often build extensive IT strategic planning documents — documents that then frequently go unused. Instead, Gartner advises clients to tell a dynamic story that helps them to engage business leaders in a strategic planning conversation. 

 You can let storytelling and simple picture techniques focus your strategic conversations on how your organization will use its differentiators to succeed. 

This Gartner one-page IT strategy template will help you translate your story into a strategic plan, develop a clear strategic plan with a roadmap of initiatives and portfolio of investments required to execute, all by capturing the key elements on one page:

  • Business objectives
  • IT/business capabilities
  • Key performance indicators (KPIs) 
  • Enabling capabilities and initiatives
  • Cross-enterprise dependencies and risks
