Abstract: Principal application research goal was directed at detecting constructs and designing strategic planning of an integrated business and information system model, and defining parameters and activities based on which it is possible to repeatedly and continuously work on their improvement. The fundamental aim was directed at identifying interactions between constructs and determining the weight factor of each model construct. A modelling method was used by setting causal models derived by applying the PATH analysis1, as viewed from the aspect of the social dimension of short-term and long-term alignment, which were obtained by conducting research on a sample composed of 45 institutions from the higher education system of Croatia and their 218 managers in permanent and elective positions. Research results abstract the conclusion as novel premise that strategic planning of the integrated business and information system significantly depends on long-term management alignment, directly influenced by common knowledge on domain and financing.
