Abstract: Strategic information systems planning (SISP) is one of the key factors in modern information age. Proposition of different methods for strategic information system planning baffle the organisations about using which of them. The problem here is the complexity of dealing with strategic information system planning due to superabundant factors engaged in it. In this paper the applications of fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs), as decision making and modelling tool, in SISP context have been discussed. The objective is to simulate and represent the factors affecting the planning process which is considered both a tool and a need in today's competitive society. The resulting SISP fuzzy cognitive map gives a clear perception of factors affecting the planning process and their relations which help decision-makers and planners analyse and come to their related decisions and plans.
