This study examined the relationship among constructs that impact on strategic use of IS(Information Systems). Independent variables were OIQ(Organizational Intelligence Quotient) and role of CIO(Chief of Information Officer) as a top manager, and dependent variable are strategic use of IS. The dependent variable has three-sub constructs: 1) IT infrastructure flexibility; 2) operation-orientation; and 3) market-orientation. Seven research hypotheses derived from the research model, and were empirically tested using the PLS (Partial Least Squares) method. The research results confirmed that both OIQ and CIO's roles have strong impact on organizations' strategic use of IS. Communication and business network among the sub-constructs of OIQ have effect on strategic use of IS. CIO's role as a top manager was found to be significant. CIO's role as a resource allocator and innovator among the CIO's roles showed significant influence on strategic use of IS. OIQ was also significantly related to CIO's role as a top manager. This study suggests practical implications and insights to the enterprises which aim to apply IT strategically.
