This paper proposes a reference framework for strategic IT/IS management (SITISM) that structures
the fields of action and decision-making of senior IT managers. Since there have been approaches to
do so in the past, we integrate models described in literature. We then use extensive field work to con-
struct and evaluate our framework. We argue that structuring SITISM leads to comparability. There-
fore we use our framework as a foundation to assess a corporate IT/IS department, thereby further
evaluating our approach.
To prepare this assessment we have conducted a longitudinal study that uses a set of questionnaires
derived from our proposed SITISM reference framework. The data gathered from 129 responses
serves as a basis for the comparative assessment.
The suggested reference framework proves to be a viable approach to structure the domain of SITISM
in various organizational settings, especially taking into account the market-oriented transition of
IT/IS departments. We used an in-depth field study for evaluation purposes. It supports our suggestion
that the framework allows for the comparability needed for assessment projects.
On these grounds, the research reported on in this paper contributes to the discipline of strategic IT/IS
management by giving a new impulse to structure this complex and changing domain.
