strategic information systems planning process 1

In our course text, White & Bruton (2016), identify three phases in the strategic process of a firm: Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation and Control. As we compare the steps in more detailed phases of the strategic management planning process (SMP) to the common steps in various strategic information systems planning (SISP) methodologies, we see similarities and differences within each phase (Ferguson, 2012).

For this discussion, you will discuss the key similarities and differences in comparing the first three phases of the SMP and SISP processes. Describe any key similarities that you notice. Explain the key differences that catch your attention. Understanding the Strategic Information Systems Planning process is critical to effectively developing the Information Technology Strategic Plan.
