Read article at Massey Research Online: MRO icon

Culture affects how managers make decisions about the development of the organisation including planning of information systems (IS) and how employees should behave. The determinants that influence the strategic IS planning have been examined and tested in previous studies but it is not known if successes are affected by culture. Ms Raja Mohd Ali addressed some research questions on the impact of culture on strategic IS planning. She conducted a mixed method study and used questionnaires and interviews to gather information from top managers (from Malaysia and New Zealand) and users (from Malaysia). The results showed that both determinants (top management commitment and user participation) affect the strategic IS planning success and were affected by culture. Ms Raja Mohd Ali findings make a significant contribution to our knowledge about the impact of culture on strategic IS planning success.
