Inter-organisational systems planning: learning from current practices
by Pat Finnegan, Robert Galliers, Philip Powell
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 17, No. 1/2, 1999

Abstract: Organisations are investing heavily in information systems (IOS) to support inter-organisational activity. These systems, however, tend to be implemented on an ad hoc basis, hindered by an absence of adequate planning. This paper examines the IOS planning experiences of a set of the largest organisations in Ireland and the UK. The paper demonstrates that IOS planning is still in its infancy, though there is widespread agreement as to the desired results from IOS planning and how it should be conducted. In general, there is an over-reliance on traditional information systems planning approaches and the majority of organisations experience difficulties with IOS planning.
