Applying principles for business-IT alignment in networked organizations seems to be key for their survival in competitive environments. In this paper, we present a qualitative multiple case study conducted in three collaborative networked organizations: (i) an outsourcing relation between an international IT and business integrator and a mass-marketed service provider, (ii) an inter-organizational collaboration among governmental departments of the state of Tamaulipas in Mexico, and (iii) a networked organization between the province Overijssel, the municipalities Zwolle and Enschede, the water board district Regge & Dinkel and Royal Grolsch N.V. in the Netherlands. Drawing from this case study, we derive four principles that networked organizations seem to adhere to when striving for alignment at a certain level of maturity.
