In recent years, technology has become more a strategic weapon than a mere functional unit supporting the business. This shift not only offers a new set of strategic options but also poses new questions for corporate leaders:
- By broadening the role of technology to exploit its trends, how can we help deliver sustainable competitive advantage?
- How can we make technology a significant driver of innovation while maximizing the benefits of business innovation?
At the same time, some traditional questions remain critical:
- How do we align technology and business while ensuring that the technology strategy is flexible enough to adapt if necessary?
- How can we focus the technology project portfolio to ensure optimal resource allocation and alignment of technology investment with business needs?
