Describes a systematic approach to strategically planning the development of information systems within an organization. It comprises four main phases: initiation, data collection, strategy formulation and short‐term development. Critical success factors are used to prioritize proposed information systems, so that those giving competitive advantage to the organization can be highlighted for immediate development. The methodology does not depend on external consultants or complex software development tools and can be used by small and large organizations. It results in a quick, flexible plan for implementing information systems in a way synergetic with the organization′s goals.
