New Novarica brief examines six IT strategy questions to engage the organization and successfully execute plans
Boston, MA (June 29, 2021) – Insurance carriers often develop IT strategies with a technical focus that either overwhelms and confuses key approvers or fails to engage the organization.

“IT strategies need to be understood, communicated, and measured in order to be successfully executed,” said Chuck Ruzicka, Novarica Research Council Fellow and author of the new report. “CIOs should anticipate the questions key constituents will ask and proactively formulate answers as part of their strategy work. Failure to do so may derail even the most thoughtful and eloquent strategy.”
