Technology Planning

A technology plan is the single most important ingredient to effectively use technology in your organization. The technology planning process will help minimize technology-related crisis to use staff time efficiently, and avoid wasting money on equipment. A created plan will help your organization think through your priorities in order to use technology in a way that directly furthers your mission.

 

As a start the organization should focus on increased standardization through written policy and documentation, and development of a detailed technology road-map. This will allow a more structured approach and allow technology planning to be integrated with the overall vision of the organization.

Analysis of this road-map can better assist in allocating funding and internal resources (staff time) and help identify any gaps which may require additional resources.
