Capability Roadmapping

Objective

Ensure IT's technology plans enable business capabilities.

Challenge

Most IT roadmaps typically focus on technologies rather than capabilities. As a result, business partners feel disconnected from the process and are unaware of the value of planned changes and unready for implementation. Immature and unstructured roadmapping efforts can easily create misalignment between IT plans and business needs, resulting in wasted investments and failed projects.

Organizations struggle with roadmapping by capability, partly because business priorities change so fast, and updating the roadmaps requires time-consuming, manual rework. Even if one group is successful in this effort, it may not be scalable to the enterprise level.
