چکیده

هم‌راستایی درجة تناسب و یکپارچگی بین راهبرد کسب­‌و­کار، راهبرد فناوری اطلاعات (IT)، زیرساختار کسب‌­و­کار و زیرساختار IT است. فاکتورهایی که بر هم‌راستایی راهبردی کسب­‌و­کار و فناوری اطلاعات تأثیر می‌گذارد در چندین مطالعه بررسی شده‌اند. بیشتر این مطالعات در کشورهای توسعه­‌یافته شامل اروپای غربی و امریکای شمالی صورت گرفته‌اند. در نظر گرفتن فرهنگ متمایز جهان غرب، این دلیل را مطرح می‌کند که مزرهای مطالعات پژوهشی را گسترش و تعمیم دهیم. این تحقیق هم‌راستایی راهبردی را در فرهنگ شرقی و در ایران به‌عنوان کشوری درحال توسعه بررسی می‌کند. این تحقیق با تعیین عوامل مؤثر بر هم‌راستایی راهبردی در ادبیات موجود شروع می‌کند. پس ­از دسته‌بندی آن­ها و توسعة مدل تحقیق، مدل را با­استفاده از مدل­سازی معادلات ساختاری (SEM) بررسی می‌کنیم. در این پژوهش هدف آن است که بررسی شود آیا عوامل مؤثر معرفی شده در پژوهش‌های پیشین در فرهنگ غیرغربی و در کشورهای درحال توسعه هم صدق می‌کند یا خیر. نتایج تحقیق تفاوت‌هایی را در عوامل مؤثر بر هم‌راستایی راهبردی در این منطقه نشان می‌دهد.

چکیده [English]

Strategic alignment is the extent to which business strategy, and information technology (IT) strategy, business structure and IT structure are fit. The factors affecting the business-IT strategic alignment has been studied in several previous researches. Most of the studies have been conducted in developed countries particularly the USA and Canada. There is a debate in the literature that we should investigate the business-IT alignment theories in various countries with different cultures and environments. This brings the capability of theory generation. In this research, we first investigate the literature to extract the antecedents. Then, we categorize them and develop a theoretical model as a path diagram of a structural equation model. We aim to empirically investigate if these antecedents are effective in the strategic alignment in a developing country. For this purpose, we run the survey-based questionnaire and analyze the models based on PLS-SEM. Based on the results; there is a difference between factors affecting the business-IT strategic alignment in the developed countries and a developing country.
