NICF- Strategic IT Planning

Overview

Strategic IT planning is a key responsibility of the Chief Information Officer and business leaders in the organisation. It involves the alignment of IT initiatives to business goals and strategies. The Strategic IT Planning (SITP) course explores how proper IT planning creates long-term business value while conserving IT resources for the organisation.
    
Launched in 1997, this 3-day programme has become a key consultancy service by ISS to help organisations establish their IT master plan to support its vision and strategies as well as the Smart Nation vision. It equips participants with skills to identify, select and prioritise IT opportunities. You will learn principles, concepts, best practices and real implementation issues related to IT planning.  Workshops and discussions are utilised extensively to foster interaction and to reinforce an understanding of the content in real world practice with day-to-day issues that come from actual experiences.

The incorporation of high-level participants from the public and private sectors provide outstanding networking and experience sharing opportunities. Past participants have gone on to apply what they learned to create IT master plans in their respective organisations. As an added bonus, ISS provides a free half-day consultancy to your organisation in reviewing your IT plan.

The course is delivered by subject matter experts who have taken part in strategic IT planning in the public and private sectors, sharing insights from real world issues and experiences.

This course is part of the IT Planning, Governance & Enterprise Architecture Series offered by NUS-ISS.
