Integrated Business and IT Strategy and Execution

In Australia as elsewhere I've seen many organisations that can and do articulate their highest strategic goals, objectives etc. but then have no idea of how to execute upon that strategy in terms of implementing IT systems that really do help explicitly in achievement of say a competitive business strategy.
I find that business analysts tend to be held more accountable for IT delivery than business alignment. Most of the tools BAs use were born in the IT world e.g. Use cases, BPMN, Object models. None of these address strategy. Yes, BPMN is an IT-driven business process modeling tool that has really only been designed for workflow modeling. Where do you put goals and strategies (i.e. achievement of) on a BPMN model? You can't except as a post-it note.
⇨ Are there any tools/methods that really address strategy all the way to execution from a business perspective?
