1 Introduction

The Strategic ICT (SICT) Toolkit has been developed by The University of Nottingham to provide a self-analysis toolkit to help Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to analyse, assess and develop their strategic use of information technologies.

The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE) commissioned the SICT project toolkit to support senior decision-makers in developing towards more strategically directed ICT deployment.

This project has drawn on the experience, insights and existing practices of a representative sample of 20 HEIs to develop a self-analysis toolkit to stimulate this understanding and support institutional development.
