Project #76946 - Alignment of IT Strategy and Business Strategy

Alignment of IT Strategy and Business Strategy Assignment Overview The Case for this module pursues the idea of the development of competencies through the use of information technology based on the overall strategy by examining the interesting convergence of civilian and military management. Two articles and a video from TED are of particular interest here. The first suggests that the military is becoming much more like a business, at least in terms of its information and financial management: Thomas Barnett: Let's rethink America's military strategy Thomas Barnett (2005), Let’s Rethink America’s Military Strategy, TED 2005, Retrieved from https://www.ted.com/talks/thomas_barnett_draws_a_new_map_for_peace.html Wang, M. Y.D. (n.d.), Factory to Foxhole: Improving the Army’s Supply Chain, retrieved from http://www.naefrontiers.org/File.aspx?id=21911 IBM, (2008). Supply Chain Risk Management: Management A Delicate Balancing Act - IBM Global Business Services A multi-faceted view on managing risk in a globally integrated enterprise Retrieved from http://domino.research.ibm.com/library/cyberdig.nsf/papers/2A4BBFF62659E48B852573A1007488DF/$File/rc24415.pdf Both perspectives have much to recommend them. It is also true that the strategic environment in each of the two sectors differs significantly, and that the basic competencies of the military should therefore differ from those required for achievement of civilian purposes. But, it can be argued, the environment within which information technology is employed is largely similar. What do you think?
