Abstract

For many information systems executives, strategic planning for information systems continues to be a critical issue and remains a top concern of many organisations. Also, a comprehensive review of the recent IS planning literature reveals that selecting a proper methodology used in developing an information systems plan is one of the success factors related to the success of the IS planning process. Although this individual success factor should have attracted more research and discussions, there have not been enough attempts to create a framework to compare and classify strategic information systems planning methodologies to select a proper method for a specific organisation with its unique requirements. The purpose of this paper is primarily theoretical and is to propose a conceptual framework to classify strategic information systems planning methodologies to choose the suitable methodology(ies) according to the specific given requirements of an organisation.
