- Strategic information systems planning in the virtual organisation
- Marshall, Peter; McKay, Judy
- To claim that a paradigm shift is occurring with respect to strategic information systems planning (SISP) is perhaps overstating the case, but there appears to be significant, fundamental changes occurring to the scope and importance of SISP in modern organisations. These changes are driven by a number of factors. With important concepts such as globalisation come opportunities for growth and expansion, but also the threat and challenge of increased competition from previously unexpected sources. Thus, new management strategies, new organisational forms and renewed thinking about the nature of competition, collaboration and cooperation all emerge in response to changes in the business environment. A major driver of these changes has been the development and rapid diffusion of telecommunications technologies, which have, in a comparatively short period of time, both driven and facilitated communication and connections within organisations, and between an organisation and its suppliers, customers and business partners.
