Abstract

One of the reason businesses fail to realize intended payoffs from their information technology (IT) investments is the inability of most organizations to effectively manage potential risks. I present a framework to conceive and implement an IT investment’s payoffs, by extending the AIAC framework to achieve the payoffs, and measure the actual outcomes. The four items in the AIAC framework are Alignment, Involvement, Analysis and Communication. The study is purely qualitative in nature. In-depth desktop literature review is conducted by extending the AIAC to include risk management. A critical analysis of the past models is established to identify the knowledge gaps.

Keywords: AIAC framework, risk management, IT Implementation, RAIAC framework
