2.3 The Enablers

The toolkit uses the Duke and Jordan strategy models, adapted and previously defined, and a number of key 'enablers' that we believe to be important in influencing the maturity of an institution's ICT strategy.

We have define 'maturity' as a measure of how well ICT is integrated and aligned with the institution-wide strategy and therefore able to deliver maximum value and agility. The toolkit presents the findings against these enablers to aid usability and, without being prescriptive, to provide a framework to assist in an institution's self-analysis.

The enablers of strategic ICT are illustrated as follows:
