As promised, we are starting a series on IT Strategy: How to create a strategic plan for IT. This multi part series will cover key aspects of strategic planning for information technology – just about everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask  😉

The first event in this series is on – surprise!! – introducing IT strategy. We will define the term and make connections important to understanding the big picture. This event is open to our members ONLY. Non-members may purchase a ticket to attend the event.

I will post follow up events shortly – we plan on having one every two weeks or so.

These events are interactive – presentation and discussions – so we are restricting seating to 15 only. First come, first served.

Please send your questions ahead of time so we can address them.


If you miss the live event, feel free to view the recording. Well, you will miss the opportunity to network so attending live may be more meaningful.

Group Discussion

There are two ways you can continue the discussion before and after the event. Join the IT Strategy affinity group which is open to all or the IT Strategy SIG (Special Interest Group) which is restricted to members only.

Earn A Certificate

Our training participants can take a quiz and upon passing (at least 80% points scored) get credit towards a certificate in IT Strategy. Please note that this is ONLY ONE part of the certification requirement.

Well, I am super stoked about this series and look forward to a lively discussion with you all!

Let me know if you have any questions!
