Management/Information Systems Strategic Planning for Information Systems 2nd Edition John Ward and Pat Griffiths Cranfield School of Management, Cranfield, UK Strategic Planning for Information Systems (2nd Edition) explores the impact that Information Systems (IS) have on business performance and the contribution IS makes to the strategic development of organizations. It describes IS tools, techniques and management frameworks - all of which identify opportunities for strategic thinking, and shows how IS is an indispensable component in the implementation of a strategic plan. In the five years since the first edition of Strategic Planning for Information Systems, much has changed in the way business is organized. However, the essence of the book remains the same - it is a practical and comprehensive book written in a clear and straightforward way. The new edition focuses more on strategic planning than on the progress made in recent years in either technology or business processes. Specifically the new material and the change of emphasis covers:
* strategic IS planning
* competence based strategies and aspects of BPR
* assessment of current IS/IT situation, including issues of legacy systems
* (out) sourcing and the culture of IS/IT
* managing application developments
* managing the technology infrastructure
* IRM, Object Orientation and Migration Strategies
* the impact of EDI
Reviews of the first edition include "accessibility and clarity of purpose maintained throughout" Journal of Information Technology; "clear, practical, comprehensive" OutPut; "a clear exposition of the impact that IS has had on business performance" Long Range Planning; "lucid analysis" Computer Weekly.
Building on the success of past editions, Strategic Planning for Information Systems considers both the implications of the developments in IS/IT and the most useful aspects of recent thinking and experiences concerning IS/IT strategic management. Topics covered now include:
* New developments in strategic management
* The Internet, e-commerce and e-business
* Outsourcing, including web services and Application Service Providers
* Knowledge management
* Enterprise systems
* Investment appraisal and business benefits delivery
* Managing the IT infrastructure and the supply of IS services
