PLANet is a set of management consulting services, using a participatory approach, supported by a toolkit that brings strategic plans and management information into a single portal, or point of access. A singular challenge expressed by customers is for the ability to easily keep plans current and useful.
So how do you maintain a relevant plan while delivering solutions long after the initial strategic plan is defined? Keeping it evergreen, reflective of the changing IT and business priorities?
The solution is three fold
create the plan with the full involvement and commitment of the those who are responsible to delivery it – using the PLANet participatory approach
provide an environment in which to share, communicate and manage the plan content on a continuous basis – the PLANet environment
define and implement clear management processes for active IT planning – use it or lose it
