How can a company gain the benefits of entrepreneurial IT decision making by line managers without permitting the IT environment to become a high-cost, low-performance, disconnected collection of independent systems? This article proposes an approach to IT planning that includes a formal role and responsibility for line managers. When combined with centralized IT architecture planning, this planning technique creates an approach to information management that is simultaneously top-down and bottom-up.
