IT Tactical Plans

Create a portfolio of tactical IT plans that are derived from the IT strategic plan. The tactical plans should address IT-enabled programme investments, IT services and IT assets. The tactical plans should describe required IT initiatives, resource requirements, and how the use of resources and achievement of benefits will be monitored and managed. The tactical plans should be sufficiently detailed to allow the definition of project plans. Actively manage the set of tactical IT plans and initiatives through analysis of project and service portfolios.

  1. Translate the approved IT strategic plan into tactical plans.
  2. Ensure that the process of developing tactical plans allows for considerations to update strategic IT plans.
  3. Ensure that the content of the tactical plans includes clearly stated project definitions for all programmes, project time frames and deliverables, required resources, and business benefits to be monitored.
  4. Explicitly state goal and performance indicators, goals risk assessment results, and related risk mitigation plans within the IT tactical plans.
  5. Base the planning and elaboration of the IT-enabled investment programmes, IT projects, resources utilisation and monitoring techniques on the detailed tactical plan.
  6. Determine that formal and comprehensive periodic review and change management processes exist to ensure that any changes made to the organisation’s mission and objectives are reflected in the IT tactical plans.
  7. Use a methodology for a formal review of IT strategic and tactical plans to optimise current and future investments and strategies, in terms of the use of scarce resources, implementation alternatives, funding methods and timing.
