National ICT policy: ICT4AD HE ICT sector policy definition: By the MoE By institutions jointly By a professional independent body What to define where? Combine levels? In what sequence? Do not keep to sequence too rigid!
First time there is no feed-back loop! Therefore such first plans tend to be somewhat different: either: Collection of ‘project plans’: high-impact, low-risk Advantage: builds on present status Threat: future coordination (technical & organizational) problems Elaborate plans trying to cover everything, based on ‘lessons learned elsewhere’ Advantage: coordinated Threat: large ‘knowledge gap’ with rest of the organization; low involvement/commitment Meeting threat: involve stakeholders in (part of) planning process (IPP as a Plan vs. IPP as a process)
Differences in plans: Target audience Life cycle number Approach and related presentation Target maturity level
Are we doing the right things? Define priorities derived from your strategic aims and work processes. In reality we all start with the boxes and cables!
