Student thesis: Master's Thesis


IS alignment is a much-studied subject; the importance of IS to be in line with the business goals is generally acknowledged. To get the IS of an organization aligned is hard; to keep it aligned is even more difficult due to constantly changing environments. This research is about the co-evolution of IS alignment in organizations in the public sector with a complex adaptive systems view. It provides an insight into the effect of the IS alignment on dynamic capabilities in the public sector on the hand of quantitative research held under Dutch public organizations.
