Abstract

Information systems planning has developed rapidly over the past decades. However, practical experience indicates we have yet to reach maturity. Many organizations have yet gained some experience with ISP. The evaluations available show a mixed picture. We seem to have reached a stage in which the development and implementation of ISP has lost momentum. Based on the practical results of earlier projects the concepts were improved, but despite the accumulated experience with ISP and the development and enhancement of methodologies for ISP, it is still a difficult task and gives rise to several problems. Therefore, practitioners of ISP are groping for new ways to incorporate IT assessment in the traditional ISP methodologies. In order to achieve a successful integration, a framework is presented, which serves as a new way of understanding the position of information systems planning within the business’ strategic planning process. Combined with guidelines for step-wise refinement, resulting in a natural cross-over into systems analysis and design, this framework is fundamental to making information systems planning a mature management tool.
