Research and development on information systems development was first carried out in countries with different cultural affiliations from that in Kenya. However, these methodologies assume the cultural influences of the country of origin and therefore may not be suitable in countries with a different cultural setting. This research therefore uses Hofstede''s 5 dimension model to study the culture of the Kenyan people with an aim of finding a suitable information system development approach that would be suitable in their cultural set up.
