The information system (IS) literature has consistently emphasized the need for a proper alignment of IS goals and strategies with organizational goals and strategies. A number of theoretical frameworks have been proposed to develop the linkages between IS and organizational strategies. However, while there has been much theorizing in the area, validated instruments for empirical testing of these theories have been scarce. This research reports on the development and validation of a set of operational measures for Information Management Strategy which is one of the components of the three-level framework for information system strategy proposed in the literature. The operational measures were subjected to rigorous tests of measurement properties. This initial set of operational measures are expected to serve as a useful tool in future empirical research on IS and organizational strategy linkages.
