Globally competing firms are increasingly dependent on information systems (IS) for managing and monitoring their international businesses. To utilize IS effectively, the need for IS planning is critical. This research-in-progress examines IS planning autonomy in U.S.-based subsidiaries of foreign (based outside the U.S.) firms and organizational variables that might influence this autonomy. It aims to determine if IS planning autonomy is a predictor of effective IS planning for these firms.
