Strategic Planning

IT strategic plans create roadmaps for how the implementation and use of technology allow agencies to provide efficient, cost effective services to citizens and businesses. To be successful, the plan must be compatible with the agency’s existing technical environment (i.e. IT infrastructure, network, applications, and technical standards and policies) to ensure the agency fully leverages past investments in technology. NexLevel assists agencies in developing IT strategic plans that ensure the effective utilization of technology and provide a framework for the future procurement and implementation of technology.

NexLevel’s proven IT planning methodology and approach ensures enterprise-wide input and alignment with department/division level business goals and objectives. It does so by putting an emphasis on the involvement of technology users and those setting the business direction for each department and stakeholders. Our consultants incorporate input from department and stakeholders so that the plan reflects an enterprise-wide scope and obtains buy-in from leadership, management, stakeholders, and department-level users.

NexLevel is familiar with the problems and issues that can arise in developing such plans. Our consultants are skilled in managing multiple, and often conflicting, visions, missions, needs, and priorities. Our approach helps ensure staff buy-in by building organization-wide understanding and consensus in the published IT Strategic Plan that will establish priorities and timelines for projects that will enhance staff productivity and service to the constituents.  We pride ourselves on developing IT plans that are realistic and attainable in terms of available budget, resources and time.
