IT departments and CIOs all recognize that its time their department is well integrated and aligned with the rest of their business. Especially in this digital era, IT departments have an increased role in the business, helping other departments along with the entire organization, adopt new digital technologies and strategies. The IT department's strategies, organizational capabilities, and resources are no longer independent; they need to support the entire organization.
Despite the increased role of IT over the years, many organizations still struggle to justify the cost of a new investment. To address this, IT needs to align itself with business goals and outcomes in order to provide data that can demonstrate the value of their request.
What hinders many IT executives from fully aligning their department with the business is their interpretation of different focus areas - strategies, organizational capabilities, resources, and management systems. Rather than spending time on understanding how each aspect operates on its own, it is time to evaluate how all of these areas fit together.
