Using alternate scenarios to visualize and concretize future options is a proven method for informing institutional strategy. Using four business-model scenarios, higher education institutions can evaluate the implications for IT investment priorities through Strategic Technology Maps. By mashing up content from Gartner tools such as Hype Cycles and IT Market Clocks, we will present four Strategic Technology Maps, exemplifying strategic capabilities and their corresponding services for executing on each of the four business-model strategies. This session will give higher education institutions both a methodology and examples that enable them to be more strategic in their technology choices.

OUTCOMES: Get an introduction to the Gartner Higher Education Business Model Scenarios and how they can be used for visual strategic planning * Understand the Gartner Strategic Technology Maps and how they can concretize IT differences between different business models * Hear tips on how to use both these tools in a workshop setting on campus to drive collaborative strategic planning
