Strategy is both much simpler and much harder than most people realize. It is simply about achieving clarity on how the enterprise will win and what capabilities it needs to win. The word "win" may sound competitive, but it holds equally for the public sector; it is about achieving your goals.

IT strategy is about how IT will help the enterprise win. This breaks down into IT guiding the business strategy, and IT delivering on the business strategy. Although some or all tasks involved in creating the IT strategy may be separate, and there are normally separate documents, IT strategy it is an integral part of the business strategy-not something separate that is "aligned" with business strategy.
