dc.description.abstract A key to the success of the information system function in organizations is a comprehensive, effective planning system. According to R.V. Head's[l] pyramid structure of an Information system managers are classified into levels of strategic planning, management control and operational control. Managers at these levels are, respectively involved in long-range, medium-range, and short-range planning. The information system function is similar to other organizational functions in that it is comprised of managers at various levels who must plan for the effective and efficient utilization of limited resources under their command in performing their activities. In this research project data was collected from the full population of middle and upper level management of a large organization in South Africa and models were developed to assist the middle and higher level management in their task of doing strategic, long- and medium range planning for information systems. en
