Abstract

Since Nolan had proposed a growth stage model for information systems (IS) development, the term has become very popular in IS research areas. The research model proposed has made significant contributions to the IS field. For IS managers, this model provides a guideline to build and manage information systems effectively. For researchers, it has been used as an important tool controlling the confounding effects of the different information systems. Many researchers have made efforts to access the model’s validity and plausibility. Overall, these efforts have not been supportive to Nolan’s stage model. This paper will review Nolan’s growth stage model and its subsequent related research. Changes that have occurred during the last ten years in the IS area will be investigated. Based on a review of literature and our experience, a new conceptual framework for managing IS resources will be proposed.
