This research examines the Naval Reserve organization, Information systems (IS) planning, and IBM's Business System Planning (BSP) methodology. The Naval Reserve is analyzed in the context of IS planning requirements. The information needs of the organization are examined as well as that organization's current IS planning process. BSP is investigated as an alternate planning methodology. A partial analysis of the Naval Reserve using BSP is used as an illustration of the methodology. It highlights some of the information related complexities and organizational influences that confront the IS planner.
