Carrywater - business architects

Operationalising your IT strategy


The primary task of the organisation’s top management is to pursue its strategic objectives. The company’s board of directors should be aided in that duty by its managers, as achieving such a goal is contingent upon having properly defined the individual actions and the projects whose eventual outcome shall influence the final success of the company’s leaders and the entire organisation.

In some cases however, the organisation may not have the necessary time, competence or experience, or may simply lack a fresh approach needed to compose the strategic objectives in a way that makes their implementation feasible.

Carrywater’s solution

We break down the strategic objectives into the specific courses of action which facilitate the company’s various IT operations.

The planning work we do allows defining the scopes and other parameters of implementation and maintenance projects, including their budgets.

We develop the rules of communication and the messages to be put across to the members of the IT organisation to ensure the commitment of maintenance and development staff to the execution of the partial objectives that impact the strategic goals of the entire enterprise.
