IT Strategic Plan for GG Freightways
For the previous assignment, you developed Part 1 of an IT Strategic Plan for GGFRT. For this assignment, you will incorporate any needed changes resulting from the feedback you received on your Part 1 assignment and you will add Part 2. Part 2 will include an IT project that you are proposing that GGFRT undertakes. This new project will be included in the IT Portfolio section of Part 2 and will be further described in a future assignment, the “IT
Decision Paper.” The entire ITSP will be submitted as a single document for this assignment.
First, you should make any changes to your Part 1 assignment, as indicated in the feedback you received. Then, you will develop Part 2 of the ITSP for GG Freightways (GGFRT), using the outline below, and add it to Part 1. A single, complete ITSP, with both Parts 1 and 2 will be submitted for this assignment. Note that Part 2 includes a project you are proposing that GGFRT undertakes. In addition to the course materials, at least one external resource (resource other than those provided in the class) must be used. Two or more cited references will earn top credit.
Use a separate References page to list just the references you have cited. Remember to use the APA formatting rules and correctly cite and reference your sources with APA format. Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered everything.
Use this outline to build Part 2 of your IT Strategic Plan. Use the numbering and headings shown below.
IT Strategies – Write four (4) IT strategies and explain how they align to one or more of the business strategies from ITSP #1, Section 1, including the compliance requirements, articulated in the Case Study. If these business strategies were not included in your Part 1 paper, you should add these strategies into Part 1 prior to submitting this assignment.
When the full ITSP is submitted for this assignment, there should be a clear link between the business strategies in Part 1 and the IT Strategies in Part 2. Provide at least one (1) internal IT strategy and two (2) business-enabling IT strategies and identify each as either and internal or business-enabling strategy.
Refer to the reading on “Creating a Future Vision for the Chief Information Officer” for an explanation of internal and external (business-enabling) IT strategies.
IT strategies are not business strategic objectives but could be general IT initiatives (not specific projects) that support the business objectives from the ITSP #1.
