Abstract: SISP in most of the Arabian countries is merely tackled to plan for resources allocation and project-based planning without considering the strategic role of IT in achieving the business goals. Therefore, the current research tackled to investigate the current situation regarding the adoption of SISP in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Moreover, the influence of the internal and external factors on the adoption of SISP as well as the impact of such strategic planning on the organisation competitive advantage was explored. Four hundred surveys were distributed to different levels of management from selected sectors in Kingdom of Bahrain. The results identified many indications on the importance of SISP and its positive perception on the impact of SISP in supporting the business strategy and improving the organisation overall performance. Such results will encourage more efforts in developing SISP in order to enhance the strategic role of IT and gains more sustainable competitive advantage.
