Abstract : The research reported in the paper is within the broad context of the theory of complex organizations. It covers the investigation of the linkage of two organizational concepts that during the 1960's and early 1970's were, and are, being given increased attention within the management world: management information systems and strategic planning. The aim was to determine whether it is appropriate at this time to further discuss, investigate, and utilize the management information system concepts to support the concepts of strategic planning within the world of large, complex organizations. However, for practical reasons, the scope of this particular study has been limited to management information systems and strategic planning within the environment of organizations concerned with government material logistic management.
