Optimize Value of Technology Investments with Strategic Planning
IT@Intel White Paper: Intel IT Best Practices and IT Business Value, IT Strategic Planning, and IT Business Agility, December 2010
To help Intel achieve future goals and objectives, Intel IT engages in an annual strategic planning cycle that aligns our activities to those of Intel’s business groups. The planning cycle provides Intel’s IT leaders with comprehensive direction, including strategies and tactics, over the next three to five years. Each planning cycle includes an in-depth assessment of business goals and challenges, technology trends, environmental factors, and current IT capabilities. We then translate these considerations into resource-feasible roadmaps and investment decisions—prioritizing IT spending and allocating resources based on Intel’s business needs to derive the greatest business value from every IT dollar invested.
Recognizing that strategic planning is a continuous and dynamic process, we refine our process to improve and better align our activities. Recent refinements include:
• Streamlining planning activities to minimize resource fluctuations within the organization and improve flexibility and responsiveness.
• Improving the way we use Intel IT Business Capability Frameworks to determine how well our organization supports Intel’s business needs and manages our own capabilities and services.
