This article attempts to unpack the concept of the information system (IS) strategizing framework by articulating, in greater depth, the literature that has informed its development. It focuses on the term strategizing with a view to giving emphasis to the process of strategy making and views IS strategizing as an integral aspect of business strategy. The aim is to provide a rationale for the whole and the component parts, and articulate the meaning of each aspect of the framework. The framework, slightly revised from the 2007 version, is illustrated. Each aspect is considered in turn, commencing with the environment — internal and external — in which the strategizing process is taking place. This article ends with a consideration as to how the framework may be put to good use in organizations.
