A Correlational Analysis of Strategic Information Systems Planning in K-12 Public Educational Organizations
Martin, Christopher J.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Three decades of research has indicated that strategic information systems planning is a vital component to business success. The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship strategic information systems planning and financial commitment has within the K-12 public education sector. Data for this study was obtained from top management of K-12 public educational organizations randomly selected throughout the 50 United States. The data was collected through a previously established and accepted instrument developed by Newkirk and Lederer (2006, "Incremental and comprehensive strategic information systems planning in an uncertain environment"). The instrument consisted of a survey that determined the relationship among the five phases of the SISP process, including strategic awareness, situational analysis, strategy conception, strategy formulation, strategy implementation, and strategic information systems planning success. The study found that there were significant relationships between strategic information systems planning and success, while financial commitment had no significant relationship. Future studies should consider examining the relationship found in K-8 and non-public educational organizations. This continuation of research could be utilized in developing additional measures that could lead to the manifestation of a strategic information systems planning model for K-12 public education.
