Strategic Business/IT Alignment using Goal Models

This paper, as the name suggests, combines two classic models - Venkatraman's Strategic Alignment Model and Yu's Goal Modeling technique.

The problem is as old as the advent of computers: how to establish and measure strategic
Business/IT alignment within an enterprise. Toward that end, this paper, as the name suggests, combines two classic models - Venkatraman's Strategic Alignment Model and Yu's Goal Modeling technique.

The net gain from reading this paper is to brush up on the two models. To use them, you will have to dig much deeper from this very good start.
