This study focused on the alignment of business strategy and IT strategy among 256 small UK manufacturing firms. IT alignment was explored using both the matching and moderation approaches, leading to a measure of alignment for each firm. The group of firms with high IT alignment achieved better organisational performance than firms with low IT alignment. As well as confirming prior findings in large firms, the study extended our understanding of IT alignment in small firms.
