The aim of this paper is to explore the use of information systems and technology (IS&T) in four organisations and to determine whether they use and view IS&T as an operational tool or as a strategic resource. Data collection was undertaken via semi-structured interviews with senior management in each organisation. The results were mapped to an adaptation of the Gibson and Nolan  Stages of Growth framework to help determine how these organisation's use and view IS&T. It was found that IS&T was viewed as operational (one organisation), as a strategic resource (one organisation) while the remaining two organisations are moving towards strategic use of IS&T.
