Abstract

In this paper a comparison is given of dutch methodologies for information planning and policy. This is done on the basis of three frameworks: Galliers, Stegwee and Van Waes, and Theeuwes. Galliers is used to give an overview, the other two frameworks are used to give a more detailed picture. The frameworks are joined, to be useful as a tool for positioning the selected methodologies. Most of the methodologies we describe were developed between 1989 and 1992. They mostly cover business-issue-driven characteristics. SDM is an exception. First developed in 1974, it gives a view of information planning in the earlier years. However, there is not much difference between the recent methodologies and SDM. In general, one can say that pro-active and strategically oriented methodologies are lacking. Moreover, most methodologies lack a sound foundation with respect to the design and development aspect. This conclusion corroborates empirical findings, which report that the link between information systems planning and information systems design and development is cumbersome
