Business-IT strategic alignment grows in importance as organizations strive to link business and technology in light of the internationalization of their businesses. This positivistic research method uses a field survey design to examine the role of knowledge management processes in the relationship between contextual factors and alignment in the U.N. Secretariat, and the role of IT projects in the relationship between alignment and the performance and effectiveness of the U.N. Secretariat. Structural equation modeling techniques are conducted to analyze data collected through a sample of 166 IT managers and 97 business managers from 50 offices in the U.N. Secretariat.
