Product details

Technology Planning and Management is a must-have resource for senior management, business leaders, and IT management. It can be used by both larger and smaller businesses in developing and implementing technology strategies.

The manual presents practical, step-by-step guidance and a roadmap that provide organizations the structure they need to successfully complete the technology planning process. In addition, the manual provides sample plans, forms, charts, risk assessment worksheets, and an array of technical and user policies and procedures.

The methodology and the tools provided allow users to:

•  Anticipate and minimize potential difficulties of the planning process
•  Easily modify the plan to meet the unique needs of their organization
•  Develop and rollout a plan using a process that is both cost-effective and time-efficient

This manual is organized into six sections that correlate with various stages of technology planning. Certain businesses may decide to reduce their planning scope and the related level of effort based on their resources and needs. In that case, this manual can be especially useful in understanding the most important aspects of technology planning. For example, it may not be necessary to appoint a technology planning team or to use every form in this manual for small projects, such as routine hardware upgrades. Nor is it necessary to perform a formal systems selection for smaller application software modules. However, the forms and guidance contained in the manual can be used to accomplish informal projects more efficiently and provide the appropriate project documentation.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further research options.

The content of this publication is published for the public sector in Sheshunoff's State and Local Government Series: Technology Planning and Management.
