Abstract: The information wave is sweeping around the world and information technology (IT) is advancing at a breath-taking pace. Nations and blocs of nations are exploring its potential. Similarly, business organizations have been juggling with this ever-evolving technology. However, a strategic gap exists, in that the potentials of IT is not maximized. Recognizing that an organized and systematic approach to IT usage on a nationwide basis is essential, the Singapore government introduced a National IT Plan (NITP) in 1986. This study reviews the objectives of the NITP and its implementation strategy. The strategy is analyzed with reference to various Management Information Systems (MIS) frameworks, such as Nolan's stage-model, McFarlan's and McKenny's strategic grid model, and Porter's value chain model. The impact of the plan in certain areas and its transformation effect on the economy are examined and the first five years of experience are explored and shared. © 1993 - Elsevier Science Publishers B.V.
