The main purpose of this article is to present a report on the development of a model of information technology management (MITM). This model is an answer to the need to support decision making in the selection of methods and information technologies. This article presents a multisequential model (MSM) of technology selection and a model for initial processing procedures (IPP) necessary for the MITM model. The presentation of the construction stages of both models is followed by a discussion on their verification processes in an environment of enterprise architecture development. Aggregated (within the process of IPP) variables are applied, such as the maturity of the client (C) and the provider/supplier (S), as well as the project negentropy (P), which is a measure of the project development state. Next, the concept of an integrated maturity capsule (C-S-P) is introduced. The work concludes with the authors’ observations, concerning mainly the purposefulness of using decision-making models in the management of information technology projects but also on the applicability of the methods of modeling such projects.
