IT strategy is often intended to be driven by the organisational vision and strategy to achieve its goals periodically. IT has significant impact on an organisation’s success or failure. It therefore does not operate in a vacuum. The issue is not just about information technology. Rather, it is the strategic application of technology, including management, which is about people and the process.

This research applied Structuration Theory to examine the types of structures that exist during the development and implementation of IT strategy, and the structures that actually emerge as a result of human action in the computing environment of the organisation and through that, identify its impact and how they derail IT strategy in the organisation.
