Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of meeting a living legend - Clive Finkelstein. Clive Finkelstein is acknowledged worldwide as the "Father" of Information Engineering (IE), having developed its concepts from 1976 - 1980 based on original work carried out by him to bridge from strategic business planning to information systems. Many of his papers and some projects are available online at http://www.ies.aust.com/~ieinfo/. I'd love to get Clive to speak at some Microsoft events.
