Alfred Kiptoo Kipkoech
Abstract: In our modern society, ICT plays a vital role in the daily management of organizations and we can comfortably say that an organization that is not embracing it will be just but finding their way out of business. Monitoring strategic plan implementation being one of the key roles played by the management, this study focused on identifying the exact role played by ICT in the process of monitoring strategic plan implementation in top 100 midsized companies in Kenya and the study was guided by Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) developed by (Davis, 1986). The model is an information systems theory that models how users come to accept and use a technology. The study used a population size of 100 mid size companies in Kenya as listed in the year 2015 - an initiative of KPMG and Nation Media Group. A sample size of 30 companies, which forms 30 % of the population, was used in the study. The data was collected using questionnaires and analysed using SPSS and presented through percentage, mean and frequencies. The study used both primary and secondary data. The framework described the three major roles of ICT in monitoring strategic plans in top 100 mid size companies, that is, how it facilitates information sharing, status identification and how ICT can help in the development of human capital in monitoring strategic plans. Monitoring strategy implementation and relationship between variables was also captured in the questionnaire.
