IT Strategies in organizations

Title: Do organizations have IT Strategies? A Study on how organizations describe their IT Strategies.

The purpose of this study is to define the problem and explore whether organizations have IT strategies, and how these are describe in relation to other strategies. This research study also investigates how these organizations incorporate IT components into their strategies. Alternatively, this research study is aimed to find out whether “IT strategy” is stand-alone concept.

Therefore, the purpose of this research study can be described by the following questions:
-Is IT “strategy” a stand-alone concept?
-Do organizations describe IT strategies as a component in other strategies?

In seeking to examine how organizations describe their IT strategies, three interviews were held with IT Managers at Volvo, Boverket and UIQ, focusing on each organization’s central IT/IS department.
