1. Why is it necessary to strengthen the relationship between business strategy and IT strategy? Give three examples of organizations that are successful because of such a strong relationship.


2. How can you, as the IT manager, ensure that each IT project delivers value to your organization? Use the purchase of new presentation software for your organization’s marketing department as an example. 


3. Several new, innovative presentation software solutions have been released that can help your organization’s marketing department increase the quality of its marketing materials. However, the CEO of the organization has never put much stock in new technology and feels that the software the organization is currently using is sufficient and sees no reason to change. Use the “peeling the onion” analogy as well as the questions in Figure 1.1 on p. 3 in your textbook to demonstrate the value of these new software solutions to your organization. 


4. Your textbook discusses five practices that businesses use to more dynamically link IT strategy with the strategy of the business. In your opinion, which of these five practices do you think would work the best in your organization? Explain in detail how your chosen practice would function within your organization.
