An executive development programme which facilitates the strategic management of information resources is described. This programme uses a combination of mini-lectures and experiential learning in a workshop format to help senior managers play an information technology (IT) leadership role in their enterprises. It is noted that the growing importance of information and its associated technology has increased the need for a proactive management approach in current and near future business environments. The growing possibilities which are resulting from rapid progress in IT must be linked with business needs and competitive imperatives to achieve a strategic impact with IT, as illustrated by classic examples of strategic-level information systems. The leadership development programme considers a framework for developing a strategic vision of IT in a particular enterprise and then facilitates the planning of strategic information systems to support that vision, using a critical success factors approach. © 1993, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
