Abstract [en]

The alignment of Business and IT has been well known, well documented and discussed since the late 1970´s. There are many reasons why the alignment gap still exists and is becoming more and more crucial. Luftman has proposed a tool to measure the alignment, called Strategic Alignment Maturity Assessment. His method is mainly a diagnostic tool to identify, compare and discuss the current state of business and IT alignment in an organization. We discuss how organizations can improve the business and IT alignment starting with necessary improvement of the information technology part. The discussion is based on general findings about innovation, sociotechnical systems and soft systems perspectives. Some of these findings have been applied and compared with evolution of business and IT alignment at Sandvik Tooling, a global Swedish company. The major results show how a company can get high business value from IT by managing IT as an innovation capability. We have summarized our findings in an Innovation based Method for IT/Business Solutions. I.
