Abstract

Business-IT Strategy alignment has been a very important issue over the past decade. This paper takes a look at Business-IT strategy alignment and provides a reflective cognitive guidance on this subject in terms of both principles and practice. Conceptual insights have been provided for both the formulation and implementation of IS strategies that are aligned to business strategy. The paper proposes an Alignment Model, as a strategic framework, that could help facilitate the processes of investigation and debate about the desirability and durability of alternative interventions in the formulation and implementation of IS strategy.
