Several recent studies ranked the strategic planning and policy foundation of information systems as one of the most critical issues facing IS and general management. The IS strategic grid was suggested as a framework to investigate IS importance to the organization: a prerequisite to consideration of IS policy issues. This paper seeks to construct a measure that allows an organization to find its position on the strategic grid by analyzing a small number of measurable organizational and IS variables. The suggested measure is empirically tested by using data from 127 organizations, and its applicability is then demonstrated.
