Technology today is a source of new competitive advantage for some organizations and a threat to ongoing survival for others. As a result, the distinction between corporate strategy and technology strategy is blurring—each needs to inform the other.
Savvy corporate strategists are looking beyond their organization’s current tech capabilities and competitive landscape to consider a broader range of future possibilities about how technology can expand where they play and how they win. But the complex range of uncertainties and possibilities can be too much for the human brain to process on its own. That’s why strategists are turning to strategic technology platforms equipped with advanced analytics, automation, and artificial intelligence (AI). Organizations are using these tools to continually identify internal and external strategic forces, inform strategic decisions, and monitor outcomes. As a result, companies are transforming strategy development from an infrequent, time-consuming process to one that’s continuous and dynamic, helping strategists think more expansively and creatively about the wide range of future possibilities.
