This paper focuses on two issues of the management of strategic information technology investment decisions (SITIDs). First, it examines the outcomes of strategic investment decisions (SIDs) according to the extent of IT intensity in the investment project (termed IT-ness). Second, IT-ness is assessed in relation to a number of dimensions, including decision formulating process, evaluation process and decision content. Empirical testing is based on a sample of 80 SIDs from Taiwanese enterprises. The results show that IT-ness is negatively associated with the effectiveness of SIDs and several constructs in the decision process. The implications of this for the evaluation and management of SITIDs, and an agenda for further research into the effectiveness of SITIDs, are discussed.
