The prioritization of information systems projects is a function of the strategic vision of the organization. We develop a model of the IT selection process that is based upon the influence of strategic vision. Strategic vision influences both the type of projects considered, the resources allocated to information systems, and the processes and mechanisms for justifying IT investments. Two of the processes that influence the final project selection are the reporting structure of the IS organization and the involvement of a steering committee for investment prioritization. We suggest that this influences the criteria used to make IT investment decisions.
