Overview

This book is the first publication that combines the principles of business process management with strategic IT planning, the result being a groundbreaking work on strategic IT and process planning. While Breakthrough Strategic IT and Process Planning focuses on the real world of organizations, extensive treatment is also devoted to the politics of strategic planning. As such, a project management approach that combines process improvement, IT, and change management is employed. Other important aspects of process planning are discussed in detail: the strategic allocation of resources, short and long term implementation of the strategic plan, marketing of the plan to gain support for implementation, and development of strategic IT and process plans for business units and departments.
